I'm Amanda Solloway and I am proud to be the Member of Parliament for Derby North since 2019, having also represented you between 2015-2017.
I've lived in Derby for over 20 years and worked as a businesswoman, school governor and an active community volunteer.
During my previous tenure as your MP, I had the privilege to be the PPS to the Secretary of State for International Development and I sat on the committees for Human Rights and then Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Now, I have been promoted to Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Science, Research and Innovation which is such an honour.
Being elected to represent the area you call home is the privilege of a lifetime. Getting the opportunity to do it twice is indescribable, and I am humbled that the people of Derby North have, once again, put their trust in me to be their representative in London.
Derby North is home to a wealth of people of all backgrounds, each person a thread in the tapestry that makes our community. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of them and aim to meet many more. Derby North needs an MP who acts on their concerns and I aim to do so with some good Derbyshire common sense!
As always, if you ever have any issues or questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
