David Davies MP

Member of Parliament for Monmouth
After leaving school in 1988, David worked for the British Steel Corporation and joined the Territorial Army.

Boredom took him abroad for several years, mainly to Australia and Asia. During this time he had a variety of jobs including grape picking, tobacco harvesting and running a backpackers hostel in a tourist resort in Queensland. He returned to join the family tea importing and shipping business in 1992.

David married his long term Hungarian girlfriend Aliz in October 2003. They have three children. When not actively campaigning in Monmouth, David likes to keep fit by running and swimming. A one time fanatical surfer and a supporter of the environmental group Surfers Against Sewage, he can still be found at Rest Bay Porthcawl or Llantwit Major although he admits that family commitments have restricted the opportunities to get into the water.
