Atkins to Liaise with the Shadow Cabinet
Following his relinquishing of the position of Chief Whip of the British Conservative MEPs, The Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Atkins MEP has been given the special task by Timothy Kirkhope MEP, Leader of the Conservatives in Europe, of direct liaison between MEPs and the Shadow Cabinet in the run-up to the General Election.
“It is essential” commented Sir Robert “that the channels of communication between Conservatives in the European Parliament and Westminster work properly and effectively. In David Cameron’s words, we are one Party and must be seen to be so throughout the UK and EU. I am delighted to take up this task.”
Sir Robert will continue to serve on the Bureau of the British Conservative Delegation.
