Theresa May has named Julian Smith, MP of Skipton and Ripon Deputy Chief Whip.
The Chief Whip is responsible for administering the whipping system that ensures that members of the party attend and vote in Parliament as the party leadership desires. Whips are MPs or Lords appointed by each party in Parliament to help organise their party’s contribution to parliamentary business.
Julian Smith said “I am delighted to have been appointed by the Prime Minister as Government Deputy Chief Whip”
