Glyn Davies MP welcomes William Hague to Welshpool

Glyn Davies, Conservative MP for Montgomeryshire, today welcomed the Rt Hon William Hague MP to Montgomeryshire.

William and Ffion Hague have recently moved to live at Cyfronydd Hall, near Welshpool, and today marked his first public meeting in Montgomeryshire since moving to the area. Mr Hague met with farming unions at Welshpool Livestock Market, followed by a personal reflection on a life in politics with 200 local people at Welshpool Town Hall.

Speaking about Mr Hague’s visit to Welshpool, Glyn Davies MP said: 

“It was great to be able to publicly welcome William Hague to Montgomeryshire and I was delighted that he was given a hugely warm Montgomeryshire welcome. William talked about his life in politics, from his memorable speech at the age of 16 at the Conservative Party Conference 36 years ago, right up to his experiences as Leader of the Opposition and as Foreign Secretary.

“I have known William for 20 years, and always enjoy hearing him speak. One of the biggest challenges facing me as a politician is engaging with people who are disenchanted with politics. I want to interest young people in the future of their world, and I know no-one better than William Hague for engaging with people. It’s brilliant news for me that he wants to help me in Montgomeryshire. In my opinion William is the most engaging speaker in Parliament.”
