  • Sam Gyimah MP  :  Member of Parliament, and former Universities Minister;  previously a Conservative, he joined the Liberal Democrats in September

Speakers in Opposition:

  • The Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP  :  Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, and former Education Secretary;  she campaigned to remain in 2016
