About our David Lammy news

Latest news on David Lammy, UK Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs in Keir Starmer's Labour government, covering his new role, political career, and views on key issues.

David Lammy, born in 1972, has been appointed as Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs in the new Labour government following their victory in the 2024 general election. This marks a significant milestone in Lammy's political career, which began when he was elected as MP for Tottenham in 2000.

In his new role, Lammy is responsible for shaping the UK's foreign policy and international relations. His appointment comes after serving as Shadow Foreign Secretary since 2021, where he was vocal on issues such as Brexit, international development, and the UK's global standing. Lammy's background as the son of Guyanese immigrants and his experience in various ministerial positions under previous Labour governments inform his approach to foreign affairs.

Lammy has been a prominent voice on issues of racial equality, social justice, and education throughout his career. He has authored reports on racial disparities in the criminal justice system and been an advocate for the Windrush generation. His stance on these issues is likely to influence his approach to foreign policy, particularly in areas related to international development and the UK's relationships with Commonwealth countries.

As Foreign Secretary, Lammy faces several immediate challenges, including navigating post-Brexit relations with the EU, addressing global conflicts, and positioning the UK on the world stage. His recent statements have emphasized the importance of multilateralism and strengthening ties with traditional allies while also engaging with emerging powers.
