Vaizey was one of the group of 21 MPs who had the Conservative Whip removed in September 2019, sitting as an independent politician until having the whip restored on 29 October 2019. On 6 November 2019 Vaizey announced his decision not to stand for re-election in the 2019 general election.


Vaizey supported continued membership of the European Union in the 2016 referendum and is supportive of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom).

He oversaw the separation of English Heritage into two arms – a regulator, now known as Historic England, and a charity, English Heritage. Vaizey also held responsibility for the creative industries, and ensured the continuance of the film tax credits, as well as the introduction of tax credits for video games, television and visual effects. As a result, the film industry became the second highest contributor to growth in the service sector in 2017, growing by 72.4% since 2014, compared to European growth of 8.5%. During his tenure, the creative industries grew at three times the rate of the UK economy as a whole. He was dismissed as a Minister by Theresa May on 14 July 2016, and returned to the backbenches.


Vaizey was one of Michael Howard’s inner circle of advisers and a member of a group of Young Conservatives somewhat disparagingly referred to as the “Notting Hill Set” along with David Cameron—elected party leader in December 2005—George Osborne, Michael Gove, Nicholas Boles and Rachel Whetstone. Like Gove and Boles, he is a fellow of the Henry Jackson Society, and is also a vice-chairman of Conservative Friends of Poland.


Upon leaving office, over 150 senior figures from the arts and creative industries wrote to the Daily Telegraph to express their thanks for his service as Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy. In 2011 he was mistakenly informed that he was to be Trade Minister, a post actually intended for Ed Davey.

In November 2011, it was further reported that Vaizey had submitted expenses claims of 8p for a 350-yard car journey and 16p for a 700-yard journey.


From 2010 to 2016 he served as Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, with responsibilities in the Departments for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) having served as the Shadow Minister for Culture from 2006 to 2010. He was appointed a member of the Privy Council in July 2016.

In the 2010 general election he received a vote of 29,284, which was 52% of the votes cast, winning an increased majority of 13,457. While the Conservative Party was in negotiations with the Lib Dems in the days after 6 May 2010, Vaizey was appearing regularly on television putting forward the Conservative viewpoint. In the 2015 general election Vaizey increased his majority to 21,749. In the 2017 general election Vaizey’s majority was reduced but his share of the vote increased to 54.2%.

On 24 September 2010, Vaizey was named tenth in the 2010 Guardian Film Power 100 list. He played a cameo role as an Oxfordshire MP in the 2012 film Tortoise in Love.


On 18 May 2009, The Daily Telegraph reported that receipts submitted by Vaizey show that he ordered a £467 sofa, a £544 chair, a £280.50 low table and a £671 table in February 2007 from Oka, a furniture shop run by Annabel Astor. The Commons Fees Office initially rejected the claim as the receipt said that the furniture was due to be delivered to Vaizey’s home address in West London, but was later paid when Vaizey advised the Fees Office that the furniture was intended for his second home at his Wantage constituency. Vaizey told The Daily Telegraph that he and his wife “had it delivered to London because we would be in to collect it and we were driving down with it”.


In November 2006, Vaizey was appointed to the Conservative frontbench as a Shadow Minister for Culture, overseeing Arts and Broadcasting policy.


He was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency of Wantage at the 2005 general election, and was reelected in the 2010 general election being again returned to the House of Commons in the 2015 election, with an increased majority each time. He was reelected in the 2017 election.


He is regarded as a moderniser within the Conservative Party, contributing in both policy and image terms. He was a speechwriter for Michael Howard, Leader of the Conservative Party until December 2004, and editor of the Blue Books series which looked into new approaches to Conservative policy in areas such as health and transport.


In 2002, Vaizey was selected by Wantage Conservative Association to be its candidate for the 2005 general election to succeed the sitting MP, Robert Jackson, who subsequently crossed the floor to Labour. Vaizey won a two-thirds majority in the final ballot of members and was elected as Member of Parliament in that election, receiving 22,394 votes. His majority was 8,017 over the Liberal Democrats, this represented 43% of the voters and a 1.9% swing from the Liberal Democrats to the Conservatives.


Vaizey has been a regular commentator for the Conservative Party in the broadcast and news media. He wrote regular comment pieces for The Guardian between 1998 and 2005 and has contributed articles to The Sunday Times, The Times and The Daily Telegraph. He briefly wrote editorials for the London Evening Standard. Vaizey is also a regular broadcaster, having appeared on Fi Glover’s and Edwina Currie’s shows on BBC Radio 5 Live, as a regular panelist on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, BBC Radio 4’s Despatch Box and Westminster Hour, and occasionally presented People and Politics on the BBC World Service.

Vaizey is the son of the late Lord Vaizey, a Labour life peer, and the art historian Marina Vaizey (The Lady Vaizey CBE). His father’s family is from South London. His mother comes from New York. As the son of a peer from 1976, he could be styled “The Honourable Edward Vaizey”. Since joining the Privy Council in 2016, he can be styled “The Right Honourable Edward Vaizey”.
