Political profile

One of the most active and dynamic of Labour's 1997 intake, Margaret Moran came to Westminster with a strong reputation as the successful former leader of Lewisham Council.

On the mainstream left of the party, she is a regular speaker in the chamber and also sits on a large number of all-party groups and Labour Party bodies.

Her principal interest is in information technology; she often preaches the joys of computing, especially in their capacity to educate and the opportunities they offer to small business.

Ms Moran is also a leading backbench campaigner against domestic violence and homelessness.

She joined the government soon after her election as PPS to Transport Minister Gavin Strang.

After he lost his job, she worked with Mo Mowlam and then served as PPS to Baroness Morgan at the Cabinet Office.

In June 2003 she became a whip.
