Ynys Môn MP is one of 15 “women to watch” in Westminster

Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has been listed as one of 15 ‘women to watch’ by The House magazine in its Women in Westminster 100.

The annual accolade celebrates the outstanding achievements of women in public life, by recognising one hundred women who have achieved excellence in their sector in the world of Westminster, and fifteen future figureheads.

Virginia attended a Westminster event today to recognise her inclusion and collected an exclusive pin badge while mingling with others on the lists.

Virginia has made a name for herself since she was elected in 2019 by advocating for new nuclear energy on Anglesey, freeports and for facing down online abuse.

She has been dubbed the Atomic Kitten for the zeal she goes about making the case for new nuclear power on Anglesey.

“I was pleased and proud to be on the list of fifteen women to watch especially when there are so many brilliant women in Westminster doing great things every day,” said Virginia. “I thank the House Magazine for including me.

“But my job is all about getting jobs and investment in Ynys Môn.

“Our island needs even more top-quality jobs, better prospects for our young, and levelling up after decades of underinvestment.

“I’ve had some wins with the Hydrogen Hub, more investment at RAF Valley and the Inland Border Facility but more is needed and I won’t stop.”
