Description

An interest meeting for those who either are already members of the Liberal Democrats, are supporters or interested in joining. Baroness Lorely Burt of Solihull will talk about a Liberal Britain as part of the re-launch of the Evesham and District Branch of the party. Baroness Burt will explore liberalism and the development of policy for the party in these extremely difficult times, offering an alternative vision for Britain

Lorely Burt is the former MP for Solihull. She was the first female Chair of the Liberal Democrats’ Parliamentary Party. Born and raised in the West Midlands, Lorely went on to study Economics at Swansea University and later an MBA at the Open University.

Before standing for Parliament, Lorely worked as an Assistant Governor at Holloway Prison, worked in personnel for national companies and set up an award-winning training company. She later co-founded WeConnect, a networking agency for women in business.

In 2005 Lorely overturned a Conservative majority of 9,407 to become the first ever Liberal Democrat MP for Solihull. She held the seat for 10 years, up until the 2015 election, after which she was awarded a life peerage and continues to serve the party from the House of Lords.
