Mr Pritchard said the focus would now be on delivering on the Conservative manifesto pledges.
He said: “I am honoured and delighted, we can now get Brexit done, and deliver on people’s priorities of the NHS, education, policing, delivering jobs, manufacturing and having a government that represents the interests of rural counties like Shropshire but also the needs of urban areas.”
He added: “I think people wanted their voice heard. They felt they were being ignored. The Conservatives promised to deliver the referendum result and I think this was not just a Brexit election but an election for one nation Conservatism.”
