Nick Ramsay (born 10 June 1975) is a British Conservative politician who has been a Member of the Welsh Assembly since 2007. He currently represents the constituency of Monmouth.


Early life

Nicholas Harvey Ramsay was born to Graham George Ramsay and Carole Ann Mann. His parents later split up, and his mother married, Andrew John Mann Ramsay was born in 1975 and is originally from Cwmbran. He was educated at Croesyceiliog Comprehensive School and Durham University where he graduated in English and Philosophy. He later gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Linguistics from Cardiff University.

Professional career

Between 1999 and 2001 he worked as a driving instructor in Monmouthshire and The Valleys.

Political career

Ramsay was previously employed as an assistant to David Davies MP, and as a general researcher for the Welsh Conservative Group. He contested the Labour stronghold of Torfaen at the 2003 Assembly and 2005 General elections and has served as a Monmouthshire County Councillor for the ward of Mardy, which had previously been in Labour hands for over 20 years.

Ramsay succeeded David Davies as an Assembly Member for Monmouth, and was appointed Shadow Minister for Local Government in the Third Assembly Term. Currently Conservative Shadow Minister for Finance and Public Service Delivery, he also serves on the Audit and Finance Committees, having previously served on the Equality of Opportunity, Health, Wellbeing & Local Government Committees.


In 2008 Ramsay spent much of his time on the Special Assembly Procedure Committee, and in particular the "S025," which re-considered the controversial Robeston Wathen by-pass proposed by the Welsh Assembly Government. These types of Orders and challenges are rare occurrences. The last one which was heard in Parliament was in 1999.


Aside from politics, Nick is a keen tennis player and member of Cwmbran Tennis Club. He is also a follower of Welsh Rugby Union - his grandfather Jack Davies played for Pontypool Rugby Club in the 1950s.
