Bristol West’s Thangam Debbonaire is one of the new intake of MPs to benefit from Jeremy Corbyn’s January reshuffle. We are very pleased to announce that Thangam has been appointed as a Shadow Minister for Culture, Media and Sport.
Thangam’s role will focus on the culture part of the brief, which provides her with a fantastic opportunity to share what makes Bristol such a vibrant and cultural city.
As a former professional cellist, the role is a great fit for Thangam. Both Thangam and the Labour Party have an extremely strong record of supporting the arts. We know Thangam will do a great job of voicing support and campaigning for the arts in and outside of Parliament.
Thangam will be making a phased return to Parliament over the coming week. We look forward to seeing her back in the house and taking on her new role.
