Syed Kamall is the new leader of Britain's ConservativeMEPs.

He was elected today in a vote of his delegationcolleagues.

The MEP for London said: "I am proud and honoured tohave been chosen to lead this talented and committed team of politicians at acrucial time.

"I am determined that people will hear loud andclear our message of reform in Europe, of a new relationship with the EU and ofgiving the British people the right to accept or reject it in a referendum.

"I am determined that we see as many Conservativesas possible elected to the European Parliament in May because we are the onlyones who will properly protect Britain's interests.

"I am also determined that our work must focus onthe legislative areas that really matter here, where real change is achieved,where taxpayers money is spent or saved and where dangerous proposals areblocked – not the many talking shops that give Brussels such a badreputation."

"I look forward to taking forward our radical visionof a new deal in Europe - that works for Britain - and to making our case bothin the parliament and at home in the UK."
