About Matt Western

Matt Western was elected to serve as MP for Warwick and Leamington at his first attempt in June 2017, overturning a Conservative majority of more than six thousand.

Before his election, Matt worked for many years in industry, where he specialized in marketing, finance and procurement. He has long been active in the local community, having served as a Warwickshire County Councillor from 2013 – 2018 (he resigned after winning the parliamentary seat), working as a governor of his local school, Clapham Terrace Community Primary School, and as a trustee of several local organisations and charities. Despite his allegiance to Arsenal, which he shares with Jeremy Corbyn and Sir Keir Starmer, he is a long-term resident of Leamington and lives in the heart of the community with his wife, the historian Rebecca Earle.

Matt made an immediate impact in the House of Commons, making a well-received maiden speech, and being appointed to both the Communities and Local Government Committee and the International Trade Committee. He is also the Chair of the Parliamentary Campaign for Council Housing, which he helped restart with David Drew MP, and a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Students.

About Warwick and Leamington

Warwick and Leamington comprises three towns (Warwick, Leamington and Whitnash), and surrounding villages which formed a single constituency in 1885.

Warwick is famous for its castle, and was home of the Earl of Warwick, the ‘Kingmaker’. Its neighbour, Leamington Spa, grew by virtue of its natural spa waters during the Regency Period. They are now home to automotive manufacturing, the digital sector (Silicon Spa), further and higher education and the energy industry.”
