Working together for a better future  

The Conservative Party Conference 

Teresa May's First Party Conference as PM is being held in Birmingham at the ICC and Hyatt Hotel Birmingham from Sunday 2 October to Wednesday 5th October. 
If you are not able to attend you can watch most of it on BBC Parliament. 

EU Referendum 

"The referendum is now behind us - at least the vote is - and while bruising for politicians of all parties, the Association is yet to see any fall-out. 
I am grateful to members for keeping their heads. It will not have escaped anyone's attention that now we have the task of electing a new leader and, therefore, a Prime Minister. Assuming the ballot of Members of Parliament leaves two candidates, ballot envelopes will be sent to qualifying members in mid-August that will allow members to vote by post or online. 
Polling will close early on 9 September 2016. As with the referendum, the Association is not permitted to support an individual candidate. However, we are hoping that there will be a local hustings to see the candidates and we will keep you posted. 
Unfortunately, the truncated timetable for the election does not permit sufficient time for new members to be able to vote. However, very recently lapsed members may be able to if they renew quickly. 
Let's make this a civilised debate and all work together to thrive in this new environment." 
Paul Ferguson 

Conservatives in South Suffolk 

The South Suffolk Conservative Association was formed in 1983 following a periodic boundary review. At that time the constituency stretched from the Shotley Peninsula in the East to Haverhill in the West. In 1995 some 20% of the Constituency from Clare through to Haverhill was moved into a new constituency.  
During the long history of The Conservative Party it has passed through many phases and changes. For much of modern British history it has been the dominant governing UK party. The Conservative Party has remained relevant because its programme and outlook has always been allowed to adapt to any changes in the social and political environment. It is proud to have never been exclusively linked to any one issue or group. The core Conservative principles are what unites the Party and provides the basis for all policy: 
Conservatives stand for less interference from the state - freedom for individuals, families, voluntary groups and businesses. 
Conservatives want to keep taxes low and set businesses free from red tape to help Britain compete in the global economy. 
Conservatives believe that the more you trust people, the more power and responsibility they are given, the stronger they and society become. We believe in giving every individual the skills to take control of their life, and in giving communities the power to improve their neighbourhoods. Allied to this is a recognition of the importance of maintaining law and order, supporting the family and protecting the environment for future generations. 
Conservatives want to safeguard the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, maintain strong defence and uphold our right to national self-government. 
If you share these values, please consider joining the Conservative Party and support us in working for a better future in South Suffolk.
