On Tuesday 9th February, The Institute of Economic Affairs is delighted to host a discussion with The Rt Hon David Davis MP for the latest episode of our In Conversation series with senior figures across public life. IEA Director General, Mark Littlewood, will chair the discussion. David Davis has been the Member of Parliament for Haltemprice and Howden ( formerly Boothferry) since 1987. He first joined the government in 1994 as Minister of State for Europe. In opposition, David served as the Shadow Home Secretary, Shadow Deputy Prime Minister, and Chairman of the Conservative Party. He returned to government in 2016, where he served as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union and Chief Brexit Negotiator. Prior to politics, Davis worked for Tate & Lyle for 17 years and served in the Special Forces in the Territorial Army’s 21 SAS (Artists) Regiment. David will join us to speak on his views and the political landscape more generally.
