David Lammy is the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice and Labour MP for Tottenham. David currently serves in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet as the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice and was previously a Minister for Culture and separately, Higher Education.

Introduced by University of Glasgow Principal, Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, David joined Centre Director Kezia Dugdale in conversation discussing his early life, his book “Tribes” and how he’s used the role of a MP to secure justice for the Windrush Generation and victims of the Grenfell fire.

Each Power Hour session seeks to exam a different aspect of power in politics and public life. From the role of special advisers to opposition backbench MPs, to Government Ministers and think tank directors, we spend 60 minutes with key decision makers looking at their early careers, the big issues they’ve grappled with and their hopes and fear for the future.
