Richard Burden

Member of Parliament for Birmingham Northfield from 1992 to 2019

Most of the entries on this website were posted while I was an MP or standing for re-election, covering what I was saying and doing at the time. It is no longer regularly updated. You can read more about my Parliamentary career and blogs I have written on different subjects below. The front page of the website contains my blog posts in date order rather than by subject.

I was Labour Member of Parliament for Birmingham Northfield between 1992 and 2019 and a former Shadow Transport Minister. I now chair Healthwatch in Birmingham and Solihull, and the West Midlands Board of Remembering Srebrenica. I also work as a public affairs consultant. I am an effective community advocate and stakeholder alliance builder with a passion for human rights.
