Alan Johnson: Speaker
Alan’s work in government includes positions as; Home Secretary, Education Secretary and Health Secretary, and as MP for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle. He will happily tackle matters of electoral reform, trade unionists, fairness at work and Jeremy Corbyn.
Alan says his greatest achievement is the campaign for British Fishermen, which helped secure their claim for compensation. 25 years after distant water trawlermen had their industry destroyed, by the agreement that the government reached with Iceland, to end the so called ‘Cod Wars’.
Alan became the youngest General Secretary in the history of the Union of Communication Workers, when he was elected to the post in January 1992. He went on to be elected as a Labour MP in 1997. Twenty years later he still manages to find the time, to play tennis and football – did we mention he’s a huge (and long-suffering) fan of QPR?
