Annette Brooke is new Chair of Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party

Annette BrookeAnnette Brooke is the new Chair of the Parliamentary Liberal Democrat Party. Annette was elected unopposed, and took her place as Chair of a meeting of Liberal Democrat MPs last night.

Annette’s new role will involve the chairing of Parliamentary Party meetings, interaction with all colleagues, providing a communication channel to represent views where appropriate and providing a listening and supportive pastoral role to complement the work of the Liberal Democrat Whips.

Annette will bring a wealth of experience to the role, having been a member of the Chairman’s Panel in Parliament since 2010, serving as the Chair or Co-Chair of a number of All Party Parliamentary Groups and serving as Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Communities and Local Government Policy Committee. She has been MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole since 2001.

Annette hopes that the role will allow her to work on diversity issues in elected positions internally and externally, and also hopes to engage regularly with representatives across the country, in the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly.

Annette said:

I am delighted to be embarking on this new role. The job is an extremely important one and I hope to ensure the smooth running of Parliamentary Party meetings as well as providing a communication channel between colleagues and for the wider party.

    ‘supportive pastoral role to complement the work of the Liberal Democrat Whips.’

    Complement or counteract?

    In all seriousness, congratulations to Annette Brooke.

  • I like the last four words of Annettes statement. Congratulations to her.
