Anna Rhiannon McMorrin (born 1971) has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Cardiff North since 8 June 2017.

Parliamentary career

Shortly after becoming an MP, McMorrin asked leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, for an urgent debate about the 1,100 Tesco job losses in Cardiff North. McMorrin strongly opposed the decision, and asked for it to be reviewed. McMorrin was successful in gaining an urgent debate in the House of Commons on 19 July 2017, and in her speech said she wished to "highlight the way in which Tesco has acted; secondly, describe the human impact of these actions; and finally, explore how we respond to these things and the next steps.".

McMorrin is Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Barry Gardiner MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade.

McMorrin is a member of the Environmental Audit Select Committee and joined the Welsh Affairs Select Committee on 24 October 2017.
