James George Morris (born 4 February 1967) was elected Conservative MP for Halesowen and Rowley Regis in the May 2010 general elections [1] with a 2000 majority. [2]

As a result, he stepped down as Chief Executive of the right-wing local government think-tank Localis, a role he had held since March 2008. Morris's old profile on the Localis website gives an overview of his life before politics:

James was educated at the University of Birmingham where he studied English Literature and then undertook postgraduate research at Oxford University. He also has an MBA from Cranfield School of Management where he won the Venture Capital Report prize for entrepreneurs. James has been a successful small businessman having established a number of software companies. He also has a strong track record as a policy maker and campaigner as the Director of the innovative campaign group Mind the Gap in 2003. He was appointed CEO of Localis in March 2008.[3]
