Elizabeth Anne McInnes (born 30 March 1959) has been the Member of Parliament for Heywood and Middleton in Greater Manchester since being elected at the 2014 by-election caused by the death of the sitting MP, Jim Dobbin.

In Parliament

In 2015, McInnes joined the Labour front bench, being appointed by new leader Jeremy Corbyn as Shadow Minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government team, joining Jon Trickett, Steve Reed, Lord Kennedy and Lord Beecham. Emma Lewell-Buck joined the team later.

In August 2016, McInnes was named Parliamentarian of the Month by the road safety charity Brake for her campaigning work to obtain tougher sentences for those causing death and injury by dangerous driving.
