70% of voters in North West Hampshire turned out on Thursday 7th May 2015 to vote for who would replace Sir George Young as their MP.
Over 58% of the vote went to Conservative, Kit Malthouse, with labour coming in at a strong third place.
Labour Candidate, Andy Adams told Andover & Villages, “This was a strong result for Labour in North West Hampshire against the backdrop of a challenging night nationally.
“In increasing our vote and challenging for second it is clear that we are principal long-term opposition and we will be active campaigning throughout the constituency, holding Kit Malthouse and the Conservatives to account.
“It was very encouraging to win a council seat in Overton, Laverstoke and Steventon for local activist Colin Phillimore however it was disappointing to see Test Valley Council dominated by Conservatives; we will continue to campaign on issues affecting local people in Andover and around and looking towards the upcoming County Council elections in 2017.”
