Conservatives publish full list of 2019 general election candidates standing in Scotland

The Scottish Conservatives have published a full list of the 59 candidates standing in Scotland for the 2019 general election.

All 13 of the Scottish Conservative MPs from the 2017 general election will fight to hold their seats, along with 46 new candidates.

Among those trying to take a seat for the first time is Aberdeen Council co-leader Douglas Lumsden, who is standing in Aberdeen South, the seat that was held by former Tory MP Ross Thomson, who stood down following allegations, which he denies, that he sexually assaulted a fellow MP.

Scottish Borders Council leader Shona Haslam will contest Lanark and Hamilton East, which is currently held by the SNP’s Angela Crawley with a majority of 266.

Speaking on the first day of election campaigning last week, former secretary of state for Scotland David Mundell said: “The choice at this election is clear: either we get more division from the SNP or more delivery of people’s priorities with Scottish Conservatives.

“Whether it’s supporting our oil and gas industry, the whisky trade or our rural economy, Scottish Conservatives have fought hard in Whitehall to get Scotland’s voice heard.

“Every Scottish Conservative MP elected next month will press hard for more.

“By contrast, Nationalist MPs have one job only – to be Nicola Sturgeon’s little Westminster helpers and secure another divisive independence referendum.

“Voting Scottish Conservative at this election will stop Nicola Sturgeon’s referendum in its tracks and ensure we get a government that delivers for Scotland.”
