Tory leadership hustings live: Liz Truss vows to stand up to ‘militant activists’ after being interrupted by protesters in Eastbourne

Nus Ghani, the MP for Wealden, says she has been “a bit busy with the 1922 Committee” and had to be neutral for the first part of the election.

“Now I no longer have to be neutral, and many of you have asked which candidate I will back.

“Only our party, the Conservative party, could have put forward two stellar candidates, with such a wealth of experience, vision and, yes, diversity. And the choice we have to make at this election I know is momentous for our country and the future of our party.

“And I’m here to tell you I have chosen, and I have chosen to support Liz Truss.”

She hails her “bold and conservative” plan, insisting she will “defend the unity of our nation and protect the peace in Northern Ireland”.
