A week ago, I published a list of the five Conservative held seats seeking a new candidate for the next general election.
But a week, as the old saying goes, is a long time in politics and the figure five has doubled into ten vacant Conservative seats after the announcement of five further retirements over the last few days.
So here is an update of all the Conservative held seats which will require a new candidate, taking into account the newly announced vacancies and starting with the safest...Constituency: Sleaford and North Hykeham
Region: East Midlands
Retiring MP: Douglas Hogg
Notional Majority: 12,687 (24.2%)
Second place party: Labour
