Louise Ellman

Louise Ellman has been Labour Party MP for Liverpool Riverside since 1997. In the 2015 election Ellman once again retained her seat, gaining 67 per cent of the vote and a majority of 24,463. [1]

According to her biography in JC Power 100:

Labour MP for Liverpool Riverside since 1997, the 62-year-old is probably Israel’s staunchest supporter in an often hostile Commons. She came to Westminster after leading Lancashire County Council. Her varied responsibilities include sitting on the Transport Select Committee, a vice-presidency of the Local Government Association, and board membership of Merseyside arts and cultural organisations. She also chairs the Jewish Labour Movement, the successor organisation to Poale Zion, and is a Labour Friends of Israel vice-chair.[2]
