Therese Coffey, deputy leader of the House of Commons

Thérèse Coffey succeeded John Gummer as the UK Conservative Party MP for Suffolk Coastal in 2010.

She was appointed an assistant government whip in the cabinet reshuffle of July 2014.[1]

In the May 2015 election, Coffey retained her seat with a majority of 18,842, becoming Parliamentary secretary to and deputy leader of the House of Commons. [2]

Pro-nuclear views

In her maiden speech in 2010 Coffey said:

My diverse constituency also contains our beloved nuclear power station at Sizewell. I hope that we shall have many more reactors there — certainly at least two — before the end of the decade.



Coffey had a Conservative business dinner, estimated to be worth £1,000, donated to her by Huawei Technologies and was taken to the tennis at Wimbledon, estimated at £895, by Digital UK.[3]
