Candidate name: Sue Hayman

Party: Labour

Main priorities: If re-elected, I will continue my fight to rebuild our fractured public services by investing in our NHS, building a National Education Service, fixing our social care system and restoring police numbers.

Fighting for investment to upgrade our crumbling infrastructure and to deliver investment and high-skilled, high-paid jobs in low-carbon energy and industry through a Green Industrial Revolution and backing new nuclear in West Cumbria.

Brexit: I’ve always been clear that I respect the result of the 2016 referendum – that’s why I voted to trigger Article 50. A Labour government would negotiate a better deal and hold a People’s Vote.

Policy commitment: I’ve always fought hard for my constituents on a wide range of issues and will continue to do so. The area that really stands out where people need more investment is in mental health and social care services.
