Hoban joined the Conservative Party in 1980, and in 1989 was elected as the treasurer of the Southampton Itchen Conservative Association and served until he was elected as the Association's vice chairman for two years in 1991.
Hoban held the seat with a majority of 7,009 and has remained the MP there since. He made his maiden speech on 4 July 2001, in which he recalled one of his Fareham predecessors, Arthur Lee, who had donated the Prime Minister's country house Chequers to the nation in 1921.
In parliament he served as a member of the science and technology select committee for two years from 2001. He was made an Opposition Whip by Iain Duncan Smith in 2002, joining the frontbench under the leadership of Michael Howard in 2003 as a spokesman on education. Following the election of David Cameron as the party's leader in 2005, Hoban became Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury.
After the May 2010 General Election, Hoban took his shadow portfolio into Government when he was appointed Financial Secretary in George Osborne's Treasury team. His responsibilities include financial services policy including banking and financial services reform and regulation, financial stability, city competitiveness, wholesale and retail markets in the UK, Europe and internationally and the Financial Services Authority (FSA), Responsibility for UK Financial Investments (UKFI) and personal savings and pensions policy. He supports the Chancellor on EU and wider international finance issues.
He was also chairman of the Associate Parliamentary Group on Business, Finance and Accountancy, now succeeded by Ian Wright MP.
He has been married to Fiona Jane Barrett since August 1994 and they live in the constituency at Locks Heath.
He has been an associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales since 1988.
Hoban is a Roman Catholic and attends mass regularly at St. Margaret Mary's Catholic Parish in Park Gate.
