GE 2019: Pensions Minister Guy Opperman retains seat

Pensions Minister Guy Opperman has retained his parliamentary seat of Hexham and likely his role as Pensions Minister.

Opperman was re-elected in yesterday's General Election with 25,152 votes, compared to his nearest rival, Penny Grennan's, 14,603.

It is expected that Opperman will also keep his job as Pensions Minister, with the Pension Schemes Bill helped being formed by the Hexham MP.

Opperman said: “Thank you Hexham! Big change and real progress for the Conservatives in Northumberland, the North East and across the country.”
