North Devon MP Nick Harvey’s knighthood statement
“To be recommended for a knighthood by the Prime Minister in recognition of my 20 years as MP for North Devon and two years as Armed Forces Minister is greatly appreciated, but of course I remain disappointed no longer to be serving in government.
I am looking forward to a the new parliamentary term where I can continue to champion the issues for North Devon and the rural South West, from the slightly freer and less regimented world of the backbenches.
“I will continue to support the coalition government, and my Liberal Democrat colleagues working so hard as part of it, from I look forward to having more time with my family.”
