Former National MP Aaron Gilmore has been returned to Parliament following the retirement from national politics of former Speaker Lockwood Smith.

Mr Gilmore, an MP in National's first term in Government, was officially returned today by the Electoral Commission.

Smith is heading to London to take up the position of New Zealand High Commissioner.

He had been a Member of Parliament since 1984 and was the MP for Rodney from 1996 until 2011, when he was elected under the National List. His fellow MPs elected him as Speaker in 2008 and again in 2011.
