The East Exeter and Exmouth constituency will include Budleigh Salterton, Topsham, Clyst St Mary, Pinhoe, Poltimore and Whimple.

The Independent Boundary Commission for England will send its final recommendations for the new constituency boundaries to Parliament by 1 July.

Mr Jupp, who was selected by Conservative Party members at a meeting held at Sidmouth Conservative Club on Saturday (18 February), said: "I am delighted to have been selected by Conservative Party members to stand for the new Honiton and Sidmouth constituency at the next general election.

"Under the most recent boundary review, the current East Devon and Tiverton and Honiton constituency boundaries are being redrawn for the next election.

"As a resident of Sidmouth, home is where the heart is and I'm standing where I'm incredibly proud to live.

"Since I was elected in 2019, I have successfully secured a new school to replace Tipton St John Primary, £15.7m from the Levelling Up Fund, a new police station for Exmouth, and multi-million-pound support for Exeter Airport during the pandemic.

"I have a proven track record and will continue to work hard for everyone I represent in East Devon."
