He said:

I will take forward the UK campaign to end sexual violence in conflict as the PM’s Special Representative.

Renewal in politics is good, and holding office is not an end in itself. After 26 years as an MP time will be right for me to move on.

From May 2015,  after such a long period in politics I want to embark on many other things I have always wanted to do.
I will not stand as an MP in the May 2015 General Election, after 26 years as an MP.

He was President of the Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA). He was also the President of the Oxford Union.
