YORK TORIES AT CONFERENCE DAY 1: OUR UNITED KINGDOM

On Sunday 28th September, the theme was “Our United Kingdom”, in response to Scotland’s decision to stay in the Union. After one of the best attended mornings of campaigning, Conference started with Party Chairman Grant Shapps. Members of the society sat on stage behind Mr Shapps as part of Team2015 as he addressed Conference.

Members attended Fringe Events throughout the day, including a Talk on Liberty with David Davis MP and Dominic Grieve MP as well as attending speeches in the Main Hall:

  • Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Theresa Villiers  MP
  • Secretary of State for Wales, Stephen Crabb MP
  • Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew Davies AM
  • Leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Ruth Davidson MSP

During the evening, members attended the North of England Conservatives Receptions. It was a great chance to network and make new friends from across the North and was enjoyed by all.
