1997 Onwards - Mr Major’s Letter to The Times on his Huntingdon Successor

Below is the text of Mr Major’s letter to The Times, written on 8th June 2000 and published on 9th June 2000.



JOHN MAJOR:


Sir,


You reported last week (June 2) that I was seeking to influence the Huntingdon selectorate in their choice of a new candidate.


I would like to say that this is totally untrue. The selection is entirely in the hands of my constituency party and I have played no part in it.


Yours faithfully,


JOHN MAJOR,


House of Commons.
