Tulip Siddiq MP (Labour)

Tulip Siddiq has served as Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn since 2015. Recently in the June 2017 General Election, Tulip received 34,464 votes, which equaled a 59% majority, retaining her seat.

Tulip lives in West Hampstead and has spent her adult life involved in local and community politics. She worked as a governor of two local schools, chair of the Camden Faith Leaders' Forum, and a trustee of several community groups. She was previously a local Councillor and Cabinet Member for Culture and Communities in Camden council, which improved the free childcare offer for parents, undertook the Community Investment Programme to support local schools, and pledged to build more housing in the borough.

She oversaw Camden's engagement with the 2012 London Olympics, which saw the launch of three legacy schemes to encourage more physical activities: Camden Sports Academy, School and Community Games, and Pro-Active Ambassadors. In her career at Amnesty International she worked on issues related to people trafficking and modern-day slavery. Tulip was appointed Permanent Private Secretary to the Shadow Minister for Culture, Media and Sport.

She says: "Through my various roles in the local community, I have learned more about people's diverse priorities and needs, understanding better what they want from their MP."
