After David Heath, who had held the seat for the Liberal Democrats since 1997, stood down, he was elected with 53 percent of the vote and, with 18.3 percent, the highest constituency swing to the Conservative Party. He has petitioned Downing Street as an MP to prevent the EU from placing excise duties on small-scale cider manufacturers’ sales.

Report of the Investigation
The report of the investigation was released in November 2017. In the 2017 general election, Warburton was re-elected with a 57 percent vote share and a 22,906-vote majority, and in January 2018, he was appointed as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Department for Education. Warburton pays his wife a salary of up to £25,000 as a personal assistant. In 2015, he was included in pieces in the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian criticizing the habit of MPs employing family members, claiming that it promotes cronyism. Although MPs elected in 2017 are prohibited from employing family members, the prohibition does not apply retroactively, hence Warburton’s employment of his wife remains legal.
The Labour Party offered an amendment in Parliament in January 2016 that would have forced private landlords to make their homes “fit for human habitation,” but it was defeated. According to the register of interests in Parliament, Warburton was one of 72 Conservative MPs who voted against the amendment because he earned money from renting out property. The Conservative government responded to the amendment by saying that while they believe dwellings should be fit for human habitation, they do not want to adopt a new law that would make it mandatory.
In reaction to Adam Boyden, his Liberal Democrat opponent, Warburton revealed in September 2019 that his family had received death threats over the issue of Brexit. He had the Conservative whip revoked in April 2022 pending the conclusion of an investigation by Parliament’s Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS) into allegations that he took cocaine and was sexually inappropriate with three women. Following his suspension, he stated that the ICGS had not informed him of the allegations, but that he refuted them.
