1st December 2023 marks one year since Samantha Dixon was elected as the Member of Parliament for the City of Chester.  

With a 10,974 majority and 61.22% of the vote share, Labour achieved its highest ever majority and share of the vote in the seat. 

During the year, Ms Dixon has dealt with 11,448 pieces of correspondence from constituents, creating 5,377 separate cases. She held 41 surgery sessions where she has spoken to Chester residents about the issues affecting them.  

By helping constituents navigate government bureaucracy, Ms Dixon and her team of case workers have put £249,619 back in local people’s pockets.   

Ms Dixon has also raised many issues relevant to Chester in the House of Commons, including the cost-of-living crisis, housing, energy efficiency, issues relating to transport and the environment. Notably, her first question to the Prime Minister related to sewage dumping in the River Dee.  

Leading the way on her campaign against river pollution, since her election, Sam has held three Summits of Dee, bringing together local environmentalists, residents, local river user groups and businesses to discuss the actions needed to stop sewage dumping in the river.  

Commenting on her first year as the MP for the City of Chester, Ms Dixon said:  

”I can’t quite believe it has been a year already since the residents of Chester put their trust in me and gave me the honour of becoming their representative in the House of Commons. I firmly believe I represent the best constituency in the country. 

“Since being elected, I have focused hard on making sure everything I do supports people living here in Chester.  

“There are many challenges facing residents in our city, our public services are on their knees and the cost-of-living crisis hasn’t gone away. Indeed, over the past year, things feel as if they have got worse.  

“Whether in Parliament or here in Chester, I work hard to represent my constituents, provide help to them while also taking every opportunity to celebrate the very best of Chester.  

“It truly is a wonderful city, filled with fantastic people. Chester is my home and where my heart is, and I am extremely lucky to be able to represent this beautiful city 

“If you live in Chester and have any issue you’d like help with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me on and I will help in any way I can” she added
