Statement from Lord Dodds

"Following my appointment to the House of Lords I decided that I would be stepping back from my party role whenever the next internal election cycle occurred.

Since, under the party rules, Peers are not even part of the party’s electoral college for leadership positions, it would be incongruous and inappropriate to do otherwise.

However I will continue to use my position in Parliament to advance the cause of the Union and to articulate the views of unionists on the future direction of the United Kingdom and on issues affecting Northern Ireland more generally.”
