This week I have accepted the position as Shadow Solicitor General. The role of Shadow Solicitor General involves providing support to the Shadow Attorney General on civil litigation and advice on civil law matters and on the public interest function.
I will be combining my Shadow Justice Ministerial post with that of Shadow Solicitor General.
Prior to my election in May 2015 I was a solicitor and director of a national firm of trade union solicitors.
As always, my number one priority in Parliament is to represent my constituents in Cardiff Central and continue to be a strong, visible and efficient MP. That will not change.
I am looking forward to working closely with newly appointed Shadow Attorney General Karl Turner and my Shadow Justice colleagues.
