Lucy Powell MP - Manchester Central

"I am really proud to have been elected as the MP for Manchester Central in November 2012."

I know that a lot of people in my constituency have problems which they need help with and I promise to work hard on behalf of my constituents to try to resolve them if it is my power. If you are having problems then please get in touch with me using the Contact section of my website.

Parliament can often seem remote to a lot of people and so I think that it is really important for MPs to try to engage with their constituents as much as possible. I will use this website to keep people updated with news about my work in the Constituency and in Parliament. I also put together a regular Newsletter with information about my work and campaigns so please sign up if you are interested.

Best wishes

Lucy Powell
