He has a reputation in Westminster as a fiery right-winger and Eurosceptic.
He entered Parliament for Bridlington in 1979 and became MP for Yorkshire East in 1997 after boundary changes wiped out his old constituency.
His roles include acting as chairman of the powerful Tory Finance Committee at Westminster, and was also chairman of the right-wing 92 Group.
