Essex MP appointed opposition labour critic in Poilievre shadow cabinet | Oct 14, 2022

Essex MP Chris Lewis has been appointed by Opposition leader Pierre Poilievre as the Conservative Party’s shadow minister for labour.

“I am honoured to be appointed,” Lewis said in a statement Friday.

“I look forward to reaching out to more organizations that represent workers across the country and bringing their concerns to the House of Commons while keeping the Liberal government accountable for their actions and legislation,” said.

“Workers are struggling with inflation and living costs and they need economic policy that brings inflation down, assists with the cost of living and secures jobs and employment during the biggest energy transition of our generation,” he said.
