Hugo Summerson

Hugo Hawksley Fitzthomas Summerson (born 21 July 1950) is a British Conservative politician.

At the 1987 general election, Summerson was elected Member of Parliament for Walthamstow, gaining 39% of the vote and ousting the Labour incumbent Eric Deakins. This was against the pro-Labour national swing but broadly in line with the swing elsewhere in Greater London which was pro-Conservative.

His maiden speech was made on 4 November 1987, during the second reading of Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill. He used the opportunity to extol the virtues of his constituency: "My constituency is Walthamstow. I have found that many people do not know exactly where Walthamstow is. I recommend that they get on the Victoria line northbound and stay on the train until it stops and they will find themselves in Walthamstow. It is an area with a very interesting history. [1]

Summerson lost the seat at the 1992 general election to the Labour candidate Neil Gerrard, who received 45.7% of the vote. By contrast Summerson received 37.2% of the vote.
