About Layla

Hi I’m Layla, Liberal Democrat MP for Oxford West and Abingdon and  the Lib Dem spokesperson for education, science and young people. In the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis, we as a party must champion a more compassionate and cooperative United Kingdom that gives every person and our planet a chance to thrive - this is why I am running to be Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

My experience from my years as a Teacher, Local Activist and Member of Parliament has taught me immeasurably about the skills of a successful leader, and how we can  achieve our vision of making our country fairer and more liberal, our children the best educated, in a world saved from the full ravages of the climate emergency.
