Helping to serve your community, Chris Evans MP Help Shape Britains Progressive Future

In Parliament

Chris Evans MPSince being in Parliament, I have taken part in numerous Commons debates and asked several oral and written parliamentary questions. Copies of all the speeches and questions I have made since becoming a Member of Parliament can be found here.

Select Committees

Even though speaking in the House of Commons is high profile, most of the work is done in Committees and it is during Committees that close scrutiny of government legislation can take place.

There is a Commons Select Committee for each government department. I previously sat on the Justice Select Committee and I am currently a member of the Environmental Audit Committee which examines the extent to which the policies and programmes of government departments and non-departmental public bodies contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development.

More information about the Environmental Audit Committee can be found here.

Labour’s Shadow Treasury Team

In October 2013, after a year on Labour’s Shadow Environment Team, I joined Labour’s Shadow Treasury Team as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Chris Leslie MP.

Since my election to Parliament in May 2010 I have spoken several times in the House of Commons about the government’s failed economic policy and the impact of falling living standards on households in Islwyn.

My role will be ensuring that George Osborne and his economic team are held to account for the damage they are doing to our economy.
