Napo AGM: Lyn Brown, MP Spotlight

We sit down with Lyn Brown, MP - the current Shadow Probation minister as we discuss a range of topics within her remit.

Lyn Brown, MP

Shadow Probation Minister

As a local councillor in the London Borough of Newham and she continued to sit on the Newham Council until her election as Member of Parliament. Lyn held several senior political roles at the LGA and London Councils, leading on Culture for both organisations.

Since 2006, Lyn has held Ministerial and Shadow Ministerial roles, including Assistant Government Whip, Opposition Whip, Shadow Fire Minister, Shadow Policing Minister, and Shadow Treasury Minister with responsibility for social justice. Since April 2020, Lyn has been Shadow Prisons and Probation Minister in Labour’s Shadow Justice team.

In her spare time, Lyn is a voracious reader of fiction. She organises a book club for women Labour MPs, and, because of her particular interest in crime fiction, is on the judging panel of the Golden Dagger awards.
