Tony Cunningham Member of Parliament for Workington.

Tony Cunningham, the current Member of Parliament for the constituency of Workington.

The Constituency encompasses: Workington, an ancient market and industrial town, situated at the mouth of the River Derwent, the market town of Cockermouth, the birth place of the romantic poet William Wordsworth; the port of Maryport and the market towns of Aspatria, and Silloth.

I will as a Member of Parliament put my constituency needs at the top of the agenda, to address the differing requirements that these vastly differing areas of our region need. I hope in this I can help our communities to prosper, improve and become a more enriched community.
