There followed a career in industry in UK and USA and in politics. He was also a Magistrate (JP) at Horseferry Road, Westminster from 2006 to 2012. John was elected as MP for Salisbury and South Wilts at the 2010 General Election and became Parliamentary Private Secretary to Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in September 2012.
