Andrea Leadsom (born 13 May 1963)[1] is a British Conservative Party politician serving as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy since 24 July 2019, and has served as Member of Parliament (MP) for South Northamptonshire constituency since the 2010 UK General Election. Andrea Leadsom served as the Leader of the House of Commons from 2017 to 2019.[2] She has twice unsuccessfully run to become Leader of the Conservative Party, in 2016 and 2019.

After graduating with a degree in political science at the University of Warwick, she began a career in Finance including working as Institutional Banking Director at Barclays,[3] and later as Senior Investment Officer and Head of Corporate Governance at Invesco Perpetual.[4] Leadsom was a prominent member of the Leave campaign during the 2016 EU Referendum, and gained standing in referendum TV debates.[5] On David Cameron's resignation, Leadsom became one of five candidates in the 2016 Conservative Party leadership election, and thereby for the role of Prime Minister. In the second round of voting by MPs, she came second to Theresa May.[6] May appointed Leadsom as Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Andrea Leadsom served in the May Government as Environment Secretary from 2016 to 2017. She had previously served in the Cameron–Clegg coalition as Minister of State for Energy at the Department of Energy and Climate Change from 2015 to 2016, and Economic Secretary to the Treasury and City Minister from 2014 to 2015.[7] Following the snap election of 2017, Leadsom was appointed Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons. On 22 May 2019, she resigned in protest at May's Brexit strategy. Two days later, May announced her resignation as party leader, taking effect on 7 June 2019.[8]

Andrea Leadsom stood to be Leader of the Conservative Party in June 2019 but was eliminated in the first round of voting, finishing 8th out of 10 candidates with 11 votes.[9]
