After the general election in May 2015, the Prime Minister appointed Therese Deputy Leader of the House of Commons. Her role involves planning and supervising the Government's legislative programme as well as being the voice of Parliament in Government.
Since joining the Government in July 2014, Therese now shares that corporate responsibility. While she no longer speaks from the backbenches or tables questions, she continues to make representations to the Government on behalf of constituents and businesses, as well as on specific campaigns. She no longer signs EDMs for the same reason.
