Judith Cummins was first elected as the Labour MP for Bradford South in 2015. She was re-elected with an increased majority on June 8, 2017.
She became the first woman Ruskin College parliamentarian upon her election.
Since being elected, Judith has successfully fought to save the Bradford Bulls and the National Science and Media Museum, and to increase sentences for dangerous drivers, as well as securing extra funding for NHS dentistry to Bradford South.
In parliament, Judith has campaigned – and continues to campaign – for better transport links for the North (including bringing Northern Powerhouse Rail, which will boost our economy by £1.3bn, to Bradford) improving oral health, especially among children, and better jobs for the Bradford South constituency.
Judith has also consistently spoken out on protecting our NHS and giving the police the funding they need to fight crime.
In January 2018, Judith was made a Shadow International Trade minister.
She lives in her constituency with her husband and two children.
