TORY MP Mark Hoban has lined up three jobs for when he steps down as a politician in May.

Mr Hoban, who represents Fareham, has confirmed he intends to take up roles at Flood Re, a reinsurance fund to protect homes at risk of flooding; Markit, a financial information company, and on the board of the London Stock Exchange.

His role with Markit had been declared on public records last month and he said the other two roles have been declared and will show on next month’s records.

Mr Hoban said: ‘I am retiring from parliament so naturally I have made attempts to secure employment for when that job finishes. I am continuing with my MP duties until May and will still be working hard in my consistency.

‘I have lots of work lined up – from meetings with CCGs to judging the Easter bonnet parade at the Lions Club.’

Mr Hoban has held the role of Fareham MP for 14 years.

Fareham Conservative Association picked 34-year-old barrister Suella Fernandes, from London, as their parliamentary candidate.

She will be up against Malcolm Jones for Ukip, Miles Grindey for the Green Party, Matthew Winnington for the Lib Dems and Stuart Rose for the Labour party.
