Seema Malhotra (born 7 August 1972) has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Feltham and Heston since a by-election was held following the death of Alan Keen in 2011.

Parliamentary career

Malholtra entered Parliament in December 2011, after securing a majority of 6,203 in the Feltham and Heston by-election.

In August 2014, Edward Miliband appointed Malhotra to the newly created role of Shadow Minister for Preventing Violence Against Women and Girls. The role within Labour's Home Affairs team made her responsible for championing the causes of victims of rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence, as well as female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and prostitution and trafficking.

On 13 September 2015, Malhotra was appointed Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury in Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet. On 26 June 2016, Malhotra resigned from the shadow cabinet over Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, along with dozens of other shadow ministers who ask for the support from the membership to get them elected and then once elected, treat us with utter contempt.
