Labour (Co-op)


Alex Norris was first elected as the Labour and Co-operative MP for Nottingham North in 2017. Although not born and raised in Nottingham, Norris moved there to study in 2003. In 2011, he became a councillor for Basford on Nottingham City Council for six years while simultaneously working for a trade union. Norris was selected as the Labour candidate for Nottingham North ahead of the 2017 snap general election and held the safe Labour seat with a majority of 11,160. After his election, Norris joined the home affairs committee and later sat on the draft domestic abuse bill committee. Norris is currently serving as a shadow minister for international development and has increased his parliamentary profile with a series of passionate pleas for what he calls a “fairer form of global capitalism”. Norris is the chair of the APPGs on baseball and softball; British Turks and Kurds; deliberative democracy; the East Midlands; sport; and Modern Slavery and Human Rights. In 2020, he backed Lisa Nandy in Labour’s leadership contest.
