Jerome Patrick Burke Mayhew (born 11 April 1970) is a British Conservative Party politician. He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency of Broadland in Norfolk since the 2019 general election.
Mayhew is the son of Patrick Mayhew, a former Conservative cabinet minister. He studied at Tonbridge School, Edinburgh University and Cranfield University and worked as a barrister and later became the managing director of the Go Ape adventure park company.
He was selected as the Conservative candidate for Broadland after the previous candidate withdrew in November 2019. He was elected to Parliament in the 2019 general election, after the former MP, Keith Simpson, chose not to stand for reelection. Mayhew was elected to the Environmental Audit Select Committee in 2020.
In October 2020, Mayhew alongside 20 other Conservative MPs wrote to Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham and Labour Leader Keir Starmer pressuring the county into accepting tier 3 Covid-19 restrictions. The letter was criticised by members of the Conservative Party and media outlets as "ill-judged" and potentially having the opposite effect of entrenching resistance towards lockdown measures and generating further divisions in the country.
