Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

A message from Rosie Cooper MP:

I have recently moved to a new NationBuilder website, which will provide a much improved experience for residents who use my website to keep in touch with me or stay up-to-date with the work I am doing in West Lancashire and in Parliament.

On this page you can view older news stories, however it will be an ongoing task to upload all the stories from the last ten years. I will continually be updating this page over the next few weeks.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,
