I have been serving Warwick and Leamington as a Member of Parliament since 2010, having previously worked locally in Public Relations and at Longbridge with MG Rover. I live in Warwick and play an active role in our community, whether it be through my role as a Patron of Myton School, volunteering with a number of local charities such as Nightlight, or meeting as many local businesses and organisations as possible.
In Westminster, I am a member of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee having previously served on the International Development Select Committee. I am also Chair of the Committee on Arms Export Controls. My Private Member's Bill, the Social Value Act, was passed in the last Parliament. I am involved in a number of All-Party Groups, including as Co-Chair of the All-Party Manufacturing Group and Co-Chair of the All-Party Group on Video Games, two vital sectors in our area. You can read more on this in the 'All-Party Groups' section. To read my contributions in the House of Commons, please see the 'In Parliament' section.
