Jonathan was born in 1965 and is married to Rebecca; they live in the constituency together with their son and daughter. Before election, Jonathan was a partner in a commercial law firm advising businesses. His real life practical understanding of the challenges facing business, both through having run a business himself and advising others, helped forge his political ambitions to free business from red tape and actively support enterprise and job creation in the Huntingdon constituency.
Other local priorities include campaigning for the new A14, Hinchingbrooke hospital, improved flood defences, a better deal for local school funding and improved rural broadband access. As one of the fastest growing areas of Britain, improved local infrastructure is vital.
In Parliament, Jonathan served in opposition as a shadow Business and Justice Minister and in government as a Justice Minister.
Jonathan enjoys outdoor sports and activities, visiting the theatre, reading good histories and biographies, and appreciating Britain’s countryside and heritage.
