In our final Campaign Notebook Q&A with candidates, we catch up with Sue Hayman, the Labour candidate for Workington.

Why do you want to be the MP for Workington?

I believe passionately in social justice and would be an advocate for our communities, fighting against inequalities to give everyone the chance to live in a safe, healthy, decent environment.

My vision for our constituency is to create secure, well-paid jobs and real career choices for our children; high-quality health care and education and improved transport links; an end to deprivation and poor housing; and a vibrant countryside for the people who live and work here and a warm welcome for our visitors.
