Laura Farris MP for Newbury

I have been the Member of Parliament for Newbury since December 2019 and before that worked as a barrister specialising in employment and public law. In the House of Commons I sit on the Home Affairs Select Committee, and in addition have a particular interest in employment, the environment, education and justice. If I can be of any assistance to you please email me at
