Halifax Conservatives select Philip Allott as their PPC

Friday, March 8 2013

Philip Allott

Philip Allott has been chosen to fight the next General Election as the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Halifax.

Philip, who stood for the Party in 2010 and reduced Labour's majority to just 1,472, studied and gained his law degree in Leeds whilst also setting up his own business after losing his job. He is married to Sandra and they have two children Matthew and Kirsty.

A vocal local activist, in 2008 Philip started a campaign to save local Post Offices, which culminated in a march through Halifax Town Centre. Prior to the last general election Philip launched a Halifax town centre petition to protect local jobs at HBOS and collected and subsequently presented thousands of signatures to 10 Downing Street.

His biggest and most successful challenge was when he took on the local NHS and persuaded them to provide a Halifax reception facility for local psychiatric care patients after being horrified to learn that vulnerable people were been held in police cells, due to a lack of local of beds.
