Toby Perkins MP joins Opposition front bench

Toby Perkins MP joins Opposition front bench

After just six months inside the House of Commons, Toby Perkins, Member of Parliament for Chesterfield, has landed a new and elevated role on the Opposition Front Bench in the House of Commons. Working under Andy Burnham MP at the Department for Education, Mr. Perkins is now at the very heart of the ‘New Generation’ of Labour Party MPs under the leadership of Ed Miliband MP.

This promotion so soon after his victory in Chesterfield in May follows the Financial Times’ article in which Mr. Perkins was hailed as one of the top six new MPs in the House of Commons.

After receiving the news of his promotion Mr. Perkins said:-

“Becoming the Member of Parliament for Chesterfield was a dream come true for me and to now sit on the Opposition Front Bench is another great honour and privilege. I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to take to task the Coalition government who are planning to dismantle state education at almost every level”.

    Congratulations Toby!

    You’ve certainly got what it takes to be one of the UK’s top politicians, never mind top new MPs.

    Keep up the good work and don’t forget Chesterfield.

    WELL DONE ON BEING THE VERY FIRST MP OF THE 2010 INTAKE TO STAND AT THE DESPATCH BOX! TOBY IS MAKING CHESTERFIELD PROUD AGAIN.

  3. Mick Brady says:

    Excellent. Great to see hard work and ability, coupled with a real desire to help his constituents, rewarded so quickly.

  4. Well done Toby! Congratulations!

  5. Adrian Hindle says:

    You are not my MP (I live just over the “border”)but I am glad you have achieved this position-I am a bit of a political nut and have observed your performances in the House and you appear to be “hyperactive” and usually have something apposite to say-Perkins,Engel and Skinner-great to see.
