Brent Central’s Labour MP is in the running to have her work celebrated for the second time.

Dawn Butler MP has a chance to be crowned MP of the Year by the Patchwork Foundation, an organisation which promotes and encourages the positive integration of under-represented communities into society.

The recently promoted Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities won the People’s Choice Labour MP of the Year award in 2016.

She said: “I am truly humbled to be nominated for this award for a second time and I look forward to attending the awards ceremony with other nominees and guests.

“I have great respect for the Patchwork Foundation and the work that they do to engage underrepresented groups in society, which is a cause that I also passionately believe in.

“I have always said that our Parliament should be reflective of the people it seeks to represent and I will continue to work towards this important aim to increase participation from all our communities.”

Ms Butler has been recognised for giving deaf people a voice in parliament, campaigning against employment tribunal fees and raising awareness in Parliament of racism and discrimination.

The winner will be announced on November 15.
