Political history

In 1997 Julie was elected as MP for Cardiff North - one of only 13 women ever to have been Welsh MPs (to date) and the first woman to have represented Cardiff in Westminster. She was MP for Cardiff North for 13 years until she narrowly lost the seat by 194 votes in 2010.

As MP for Cardiff North Julie Morgan was a member of the Justice, Welsh Affairs, and Public Administration Select Committees and of the Parliamentary Labour Party's Women's Group.

 

She was chair of groups including the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Children in Wales, working with children’s voluntary groups across Wales; the APPG for Gypsy and Traveller Law Reform, and the APPG for Sex Equality (working with the Equality and Human Rights Commission). She was also co-chair of the APPG on Global TB.

 

During her time in Westminster she presented three Private Members’ Bills - one on banning smoking in public places, one on granting votes at 16, and one on preventing under-18s from using sunbeds which became law in 2010.

Julie was elected as the Assembly Member for Cardiff North in 2011.
