About Neil O'Brien

Neil’s campaigning priorities include protecting the countryside and reforming our planning system, cracking down on crime, backing investment in education and improving our local infrastructure.

Another key priority is to back local charities and volunteers - particularly those involved in fighting loneliness, working for good community relations and helping carers.

Neil says: “We are lucky to live in an area with such a strong sense of community, and I will do everything I can to back those who make our area such a great place to live.”

Prior to becoming the Conservative MP for Harborough, Neil O'Brien worked at No. 10 Downing Street where he was an adviser to the Prime Minister on the economy. He worked for four years at the Treasury, and in his spare time did outreach work with homeless people and was a chair of school governors.  

Neil's wife Jemma is a doctor, and their little daughter Florence was born in an NHS hospital - so fighting for good NHS services locally is another top priority.

Neil says: "I love my work as MP for Harborough, Oadby and Wigston.  This is a wonderful part of the country and I am fighting to make it even better, and make sure our area gets its fair share of investment.”
