Lorraine Fullbrook (born 28 July 1959) is a British Conservative MP for South Ribble, first elected in 2010.[5][6]

Mrs Fullbrook was formerly the Conservative Leader of Hart Council in Hampshire, stepping down in 2004 after being selected as parliamentary candidate for the South Ribble constituency in north-west England.[4] She contested the seat at the 2005 General Election, when she came second to the incumbent MP, David Borrow.[7] She contested the seat again in the 2010 General Election when she defeated David Borrow with an 8.1% swing from the Labour Party to the Conservative Party, and regained the seat for the Conservative Party after 13 years.[1][5]

In the 2010 election, her personal campaign was the most expensive in the country. Between January 1 and polling day, her campaign cost £41,700. Campaign costs are not passed on to the taxpayer but are incurred by the local party and are raised by holding coffee mornings, dinners or selling raffle tickets. [7]

In 2013 she announced that she would not contend the next election and would be standing down after just one term.
