UUP pick Westminster candidates

The UUP executive have apparently confirmed 9 of their candidates for Westminster. These are now the UCUNF candidates for the respective constituencies they are as follows:

East Belfast Trevor Ringland
West Belfast Bill Manwaring
Upper Bann Harry Hamilton
Mid Ulsrter Sandra Overend
Lagan Valley Daphne Trimble
Newry Armagh Danny Kennedy
West Tyrone Ross Hussey
Strangford Mike Nesbitt
South Down John McCallister

In addition although he has apparently denied it in the Irish News today, there is a large amount of speculation that former senior RUC officer Norman Baxter will be the unopposed unionist candidate in Fermanagh / South Tyrone. If true that will no doubt be a battle royal with Gildernew.
