My Life in PoliticsSpeaker: Lyn Brown MP
Lyn, Labour MP for West Ham since 2005 is a riveting speaker about her personal and professional life. Not to be missed. ‘I was born and raised in Silvertown, in a Council flat on the fifth floor of a block of flats. Though I didn’t understand it at the time, our family was not very well off. My mum and dad both worked in local factories, mum packing icing sugar in Tate & Lyle. My mum was determined that my sister and I would not follow in her footsteps, she craved a different life for us both and did all she could to make it happen. With all of mum’s hopes for my sister and I, she could not have possibly foreseen the journey we have both had. I have experiences in & out of Government which I’ll share with you in July.
