Lindsay Hoyle


Lindsay Hoyle was re-elected MP for Chorley on May 7th 2015 with 23322 votes, taking 45.1% of the vote.

Lindsay was elected Member of Parliament for Chorley in 1997 – the first Labour MP to represent Chorley for 18 years.

Before entering Parliament Lindsay served on Chorley Borough Council, being the youngest ever councillor to serve in Chorley when elected in 1980 at the age of 22. During his time on Chorley Borough Council Lindsay acted as Chairman of the Economic Development Committee and initiated plans for the redevelopment of the Royal Ordnance site now better known as Buckshaw Village.

Lindsay also held the post of Deputy Leader from 1994 to 1997 and was Mayor of Chorley from 1997 to 1998.

He comes from a political family – his father, Doug Hoyle, was MP for Warrington and now sits in the House of Lords.

Outside of politics Lindsay likes to relax at home by reading, watching sport and in particular watching rugby league. As former Chairman of Chorley Rugby League Club the game remains his personal favourite. When not occupied by rugby the pets and garden take up the majority of his free time.
