"Simon was elected the Conservative Member of Parliament for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire in May 2010 and re-elected in 2015 with an increased majority. He has served as member of the Constitutional Reform Select Committee, the Welsh Affairs Select Committee and currently the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee, as well as the backbench Environment committee and several All Party Parliamentary Groups. He is also one of the twelve executives of the 1922 Committee.
"Prior to being elected in 2010 Simon was Chief Executive of the Countryside Alliance, Europe’s largest rural affairs lobby group, for seven years. His long-standing interest in learning outside the classroom has been reflected in his chairmanship of a charitable group that works with Government on this subject and his appointment as an educational consultant to the Countryside Alliance. He also previously worked as a chartered surveyor in Carmarthen and Haverfordwest and served with the Territorial Army for seven years."
