Parliamentary career

Matheson was selected as the Labour Party Parliamentary Candidate for the City of Chester in June 2013. After 7 May 2015 he gained the seat from Conservative Stephen Mosley with a majority of 93 votes, having the 3rd smallest majority of a parliamentary constituency in the UK.
