Rosie Duffield was elected as MP for Canterbury in June 2017. Her historic win overturned a Conservative majority of almost 10,000.

As a single mother, Rosie stood for parliament because she had personal experience of the damaging effect of cuts to tax credits under the Tories and had witnessed the increase in homelessness on our streets. She has promised to fight for a fairer use of our country’s wealth and a better life for everyone in our area.

Rosie is currently putting together her office and will soon be publishing dates of surgeries. In the meantime she can be contacted on email at rosie.duffield.mp@parliament.uk
