Lilian Rachel Greenwood (born 26 March 1966) has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Nottingham South since the 2010 general election.

Parliamentary career

Greenwood was selected as the Labour Party candidate for the 2010 general election after the incumbent Labour MP, Alan Simpson, announced in 2007 that he would not stand for re-election. She was elected with 37.3% of the vote; a majority of 4.4% over her closest rival.

In July 2010, she was appointed to the Transport Select Committee. She was subsequently appointed as an Assistant Whip.

In late September 2011, she was asked by Edward Miliband (Leader of the Labour Party) to take the role of Shadow Minister of Transport. Following the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party, on 14 September 2015 she was named as the Shadow Secretary of State for Transport. She resigned in June 2016 as part of the chicken coup.
