New MPs reflect on their first day in parliament – Channel 4 News

Keir Starmer hailed what he called the most diverse parliament by race and gender which the country has ever seen. It includes 335 newly elected MPs, all starting work in the Commons for the very first time. The Commons was so crowded today, it was standing room only at the back.

We’re joined by Joshua Reynolds, the new Liberal Democrat MP for Maidenhead. He took the seat from the Conservative Party after the former prime minister Theresa May stood down.

And, Marie Tidball – Labour’s new MP for Penistone & Stocksbridge. A red wall seat which the Tories won in 2019 but failed to hold this time.
