Candidates 2

A look at the five Tories who've put themselves forward to next week's vote for the Chair of the Commons Culture Media & Sport Select Committee - and an additional £14,876 p.a.

Graham Stuart, 53, MP for Beverley and Holderness since 2005 (Glenalmond College, Perth and BA Law, Selwyn College, Cambridge)

Graham was previously chair of the Education Select Committee. He's a cyclist, has competed in triathlons, and enjoys ski-ing - at least until Spring 2013, when he broke several bones ski-ing towards a restaurant in Chamonix.

Born in Carlisle, he confesses to a love of "classic punk rock". Carlisle produced The Ironing Boards and Skidmarkx, as well as playing host to bigger bands in the late 70s. There's no sign of a football club in his life, but he has regularly visited Holderness Vikings Rugby League club.

Graham is likely to maintain his long-standing concerns about rural broadband provision, and has promised to get Whittingdale to City of Culture 2017 Hull pretty quick if elected.
