Supported Votes at 16

  • I have strongly campaigned for and repeatedly voted to lower the voting age to give 16 and 17-year-olds the right to vote in UK elections.

Campaigned for a fairer votes

I have spoken in debates in favour of Proportional Representation and I sponsored an Early Day Motion on changing the voting system in general elections. I also set up the All Party Parliamentary Group on Proportional Representation.

Voted to reform Parliament

I've voted to reform our Parliament including having an elected House of Lords. I have also supported proxy votes for MPs on maternity and paternity leave and I voted to amend the House of Commons sitting hours to make it more family-friendly.
