On Saturday 16 November Lucy took part in a Q&A with People's History Museum Director Katy Archer. Lucy spoke about her journey from joining the Labour Party, to becoming the first ever female Labour MP in Manchester, to taking up her new role as shadow minister for childcare.
‘I'm really glad to have been able to take part in this festival as part of Parliament Week in Manchester.
"Parliament and politics can seem remote to people and so it was good to have the chance to discuss parliament's work in my constituency and to hear some of the questions which people have."
"I am very keen to talk to people about politics as much as possible and I'm pleased to have been given the chance to talk about some of my own experiences.’
