Likely date for Tiverton and Honiton byelection: 23 June

Two parliamentary by-elections are set to be held in Wakefield and in Tiverton & Honiton on the same day next month following the resignation of two Conservative MPs.

The Tory chief whip, Chris Heaton-Harris, is expected to move the writ — a formal process effectively triggering a by-election — on Tuesday, with a vote likely in both constituencies on 23 June. 

Time is short for anyone interested in standing for the Conservatives. They have only until tomorrow to apply and we know that the Tories are particularly seeking tractor enthusiasts. – Owl
