David Hanson MP|Delyn

David Hanson

I have been very proud to represent Delyn since 1992. I live in the constituency as well as maintaning a full-time constituency office and holding regular advice surgeries across the constituency.

From the general election of 2001 until the 2005 election, I was Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Prime Minister, Tony Blair. This position was an honour not just for me, but also for the whole of Delyn. I was the link between the Prime Minister and other MPs and kept him in touch with opinions within Parliament. 

Between 2005-2010 I was Minister of State at Northern Ireland, the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office. Since 2010 I have been Shadow Exchequer Secretary.

The needs of my constituents are my first priority.
