Mr Heaton Jones says he relished the opportunity to lobby Cameron and Paterson on local issues

Conservative PPC for North Devon Peter Heaton Jones was ‘delighted’ by Prime Minister David Cameron’s visit to this year’s North Devon Show.

Mr Heaton Jones – the Conservative Party’s parliamentary hopeful for the 2015 General Election - said he took the opportunity to lobby the Prime Minister on important local issues, including roads, broadband, the Tarka train line and flooding issues.

“I think he really listens and he will now be asking the relevant ministers to make sure these issues are addressed.

“I was delighted that David Cameron came to the North Devon Show; he was there not only to pledge government support to agriculture but to show how serious the Conservatives are about winning North Devon.
