With her background as an economist, Rachel has a great deal of expertise in the areas of finance and business and has written studies about the financial crisis for top think tanks. She is currently the chair of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee in Parliament. Following the collapse of Corillion, Rachel has called for corporate governance laws to be rewritten "so that companies can't siphon off money to the detriment of suppliers, workers and, ultimately, the British taxpayer".
How More United supports Rachel
Frustrated at the lack of awareness of key women in Parliamentary history, Rachel recently wrote and published the first biography of pioneering parliamentarian, Alice Bacon, who was MP for Leeds North East from 1945-1970.
Together with Conservative MP Seema Kennedy, Rachel co-chairs the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness, which works to address the negative impact loneliness has on different sections of society.
