Show 236 - Chloe Smith

Once the youngest MP in the Commons, Chloe Smith is now Minister of State for the Constitution and Devolution. Chloe explains what the new Elections Bill will mean for Voter ID, expanding the franchise and online campaigning. Chloe reflects on some of the big moments in her life and career, including her recent announcement that she is clear of breast cancer. Chloe and Matt discuss some of the big questions in UK politics: where should power lie in the UK? Why is English devolution not done at a national level? Did Chloe ever try and get a job at North Norfolk Digital?
