    Welcome to the website of Richard Ashworth Conservative MEP for the South-East.

    The UK is represented in the European Parliament on a regional basis and the South East is one of ten separate regions. There are ten MEPs representing our region, four of which are currently Conservative. The system for electing MEPs in each region is Proportional Representation. Unfortunately this is a system which, although appears fair, makes the link between MEP and constituent even harder. For this reason, my Conservative MEP colleagues and I try to pay special attention to particular areas to compliment our work across the region. In my first term, I have focussed my work in Kent and East Sussex.

    The South East includes Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Hampshire, Kent, Sussex and the Isle of Wight – if you live in one of these areas you are one of my constituents. Having lived in the region all of my life, I am very proud to represent the South East. Please have a look at my work album to see what I’ve been upto in your patch so far (insert link)
