Labour and Co-operative MP for and Shadow Health Minister
Members of Parliament
In October 2013, I was appointed Shadow Minister for Public Health, having previously served as Shadow Minister for Climate Change.
I am a child of Thatcher’s Britain. Born shortly after she came to power, I had my childhood in the 80s and 90s. I was only young, but I remember what it was like. It was a nasty, spiteful, shameful period in our history. I’m in politics to make sure that we never go back.
I grew up in Wembley, on the edge of London, in a close, Jewish family. My Dad runs a shop which is a family business and my Mum works as part of the patient and family support team in a Palliative Care Unit. My grandad sold ladies fashions from a market stall across Northampton. My brother is a musician.
Before entering Parliament, I was a member of the Co-operative Party’s National Youth Committee, serving as its Vice Chair.
