Stewart Jackson is the former Conservative Party member of Parliament (MP) for Peterborough (2005-)[1] who lost his seat in the June 2017 snap UK general election.

Parliamentary career

Jackson has previously held a variety of other parliamentary roles including as the chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Pakistan between 2007 and 2010. He has also previously served in the opposition whips' office and was shadow minister for communities and local government in 2008. [2]

Following the 2010 election, Jackson was appointed as parliamentary private secretary to Owen Paterson secretary of state for Northern Ireland and he held this position until October 2011 when he resigned. His resignation was supposedly due to 'his support for the motion on an EU referendum, which the Government opposed on a three line Whip'. [2]

Jackson sat on the Public Accounts Committee which is responsible for overseeing government expenditures.

In the 2015 general election, Jackson retained his seat for a third term with a majority of 1,925. [3] 


Stewart studied economics and public administration at Royal Holloway College in the 1980s and was awarded an honours degree from the University of London in 1988. He also holds a masters degree in Human Resource Management. [2]
