THE leading Conservative opposition front bench spokesperson, Oliver Heald MP for Hertfordshire North East, will be coming to Palma to address members of Conservatives abroad later this month. Heald, who was promoted to Shadow Leader of the House in 2003, is currently the Shadow Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs and the Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster after being personally asked to take up the role by the present Conservative Party leader David Cameron at the end of last year. Heald, a former barrister, has been the MP for Hertfordshire North East since 1992, was the Junior Minister dealing with pensions in 1996 and, as a Minister in the Department of Social Security, lead the John Major government's campaign against benefit fraud. Heald is reported to be pro-European, although opposed to British entry into the Euro, and is one of the less partisan members of the Conservative benches. Oliver Heald, who was part of Iain Duncan Smith's shadow cabinet as Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions in 2002, will be addressing members of Conservatives Abroad over dinner at Son Gual on Saturday, November 18.
