Lynne Neagle AM

lynne_neagleWorking Hard in The Assembly Since 1999

Lynne Neagle was born in Merthyr Tydfil 1968 and was educated at Cyfarthfa High School, then Reading University, where she studied French and Italian. She is married to Huw Lewis, Assembly Member for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, and has two sons.

Prior to her election to the Assembly in 1999, Lynne held a number of posts within the voluntary sector in Wales, working for organisations such as Shelter Cymru, Mind and the CAB. She was Carers Development Officer with Voluntary Action Cardiff and also worked as a researcher for Glenys Kinnock MEP.

Lynne was a long-serving chair of the Labour Group in the Assembly until 2008. Her political interests include health, housing, social services, Europe and the future of the valleys in south Wales. She has led high profile campaigns on issues like MMR uptake and disabled children’s services.

She is a formidable campaigner who’s always passionate in championing the issues that matter to the people she represents. As well as being a hard-working constituency AM, Lynne is well known for her fierce and often hard-hitting contributions in committees and on the floor of the Senedd.

Although fiercely loyal to her party on the one hand, Lynne has never been afraid to speak out on the issues she believes in. This spirit has led to a number of high profile campaigns over the years; her calls for the MMR vaccine to become an entry requirement for schools led to a wide ranging national debate on the issue, and more recently, Lynne successfully campaigned for Gwent’s £220 million Specialist and Critical Care Centre to be sited in Cwmbran.
