He told party members: “I am delighted to be re-selected as the Scottish Conservative & Unionist party candidate for the Borders.

“It has been the privilege of my life to serve as your MP, and I will fight hard to be re-elected and earn the chance to represent you again.

“The Scottish Borders is a beautiful and fantastic place to live and work, but local people also face many challenges that deserve our utmost attention.”
