Barbara Keeley MP


Barbara:: Labour will remain the voice of women in Parliament

Barbara joined female colleagues on the first day of Parliament to celebrate Labour's achievements for women and highlight the fact that Labour has more women MPs than all other parties put together. Labour's women MPs now total 81 or over 31% of the Parliamentary Party.

Barbara said:

“The big advances of the last decade for women were all made possible under Labour by having more women MPs in parliament and government.

“Labour will remain the voice of women in Parliament. When it comes to issues like childcare, care of older people, maternity pay and leave and tackling domestic violence, Labour women will continue to speak up for women in this country.

“The Liberal Conservative coalition has already cut the number of women in government, and is promising to cut support for women through planned cuts to tax credits and abolishing Child Trust Funds. I am determined to keep fighting to support services which are important to women both in Worsley and Eccles South and across the country."
