UK’s first woman Sikh MP elected to key Parliament panel

WEB DESK

Britain’s first woman Sikh MP has been elected to an influential cross-party panel in the UK Parliament that examines the workings of the Home Office.

Preet Kaur Gill, who won the Edgbaston seat for the Labour party in the June 8 snap general election, was elected to the Home Affairs Select Committee in the UK Parliament.

The House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee was chaired by Keith Vaz, Britain’s longest-serving Indian-origin MP, until he stepped down from the post last year. Its newly-elected chair is Labour party MP Yvette Cooper, elected unopposed to the post last week.

Gill has also been chosen to lead the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for British Sikhs.
