Charlie Elphicke was elected as MP for Dover and Deal at the 2010 election. Prior to his election Charlie was a partner in an international law firm, concentrating on securing more inward investment into Britain. Charlie is a frequent commentator on stronger borders, fairer taxes and a better deal for motorists. In past times, Charlie served as a Councillor on Lambeth Council.
Charlie is a member of the Public Accounts Committee and is Chairman of the APPG for Fair Fuel. He is passionate about getting Britain working, a fairer society and opportunity politics where everyone gets to have a crack at life and realise their potential.
Charlie was elected to serve Dover and Deal in 2010 and again in 2015. He has led successful campaigns to save the Port of Dover, build a new Dover Hospital, safeguard Deal Hospital, secure an all-day High Speed service to Deal, and to bring more jobs and money to our area.
Charlie successfully campaigned for the Calais Jungle to be dismantled – and for fuel duty to be frozen in Autumn 2016. Charlie is now fighting for more investment at Dover to ensure long tailbacks on Brexit are avoided.
