The MPs Roadshow

A series profiling six young MPs and eavesdropping on their understanding of constituency duty.

Conservative Justine Greening, who snatched her Putney seat from Labour in May, believes an MP should be someone who has the determination and tenacity to make sure local views are heard at the highest level in government.

Jo Swinson is similarly encouraged by a new focus on local politics - something that the Liberal Democrats have exploited successfully in key by-elections in the past.

1/3.

A series profiling six young MPs and eavesdropping on their understanding of constituency duty.

Ed Vaizey is the youngest ever Tory grandee.

Almost as soon as he joined the party he found favour with senior front-benchers, but in his constituency he displays a rebellious streak.

Nia Griffith has a very different background.

She's a classic product of student activism, but in Llanelli she's well known for her focus on local issues and local politics.
