‘Backbenchers: the real powerbrokers?’

Monday 13th December

Pagefield is launching our new report ‘Backbenchers: the real powerbrokers?’ today.

The report recognises those MPs who, away from the frontbenches, are holding Government to account and making a difference. Two years on from the 2019 General Election, we are focusing on those who have used their position from the backbenches to campaign for changes making real differences to people’s lives.

Our report looks at 20 of the most influential MPs currently sitting on the backbenches, and the causes they have championed. These include better support for veterans, establishing funding for children’s funerals, chairing a fan-led review of football, and putting a greater focus on women’s rights.

We would like you to vote for the MP you think is the most influential. Read our report and vote for your favourite. Voting will be open from today, Monday 13th December, until Friday 7th January.
