Fast Facts You Need To Know


In the May 2015 General Election he lost his seat to the Conservative Luke Hall.

In August 2015 it was announced Webb will become director of policy and external communications at the financial services mutual Royal London. Parliamentary rules prevent Webb from direct political lobbying for the first two years.


Webb attracted media attention in March 2014, when he remarked in a television interview that due to the coalition government’s pension reforms, he was relaxed if pensioners wanted to spend their savings on a Lamborghini.


Steve Webb claims support for the Freedom of Information Act but in February 2012 he voted against the disclosure to the public of the ‘risk register’ pertaining to that year’s controversial Health and Social Care Bill, despite the Information Commissioner’s ruling that the government should publish the document and professional bodies representing doctors, nurses and other NHS workers overwhelmingly opposing the changes proposed by the Bill.

In Autumn 2012 auto-enrolment was introduced for large businesses in the UK, being rolled out to smaller businesses over the next 4 years. Auto-enrolment automatically enrols employees into a contributory pension scheme, unless they opt out. Estimates suggest that 600,000 people were auto-enrolled by the end of 2013 and that by 2014, £11M per year would be added to the total UK investment in pensions,


At the 2010 general election, the constituency of Northavon was split into two new constituencies. Subsequently, Steve Webb was elected for the new Thornbury and Yate constituency which covers most of the ground originally covered by Northavon.

In a letter dated 12 April 2010, Webb said on behalf of the Liberal Democrats: “We are very clear that all accrued rights should be honoured: a pension promise made should be a pension promise kept. Therefore we would not make any changes to pension rights that have already been built up. I have confirmed that I regard accrued index-linked rights as protected.” However in July 2010, as the Coalition Minister for Works and Pensions, Webb announced plans to link private sector pension payments to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) instead of the Retail Prices Index (RPI), which would reduce the value of fully accrued index-linked pensions.


In 2001, Webb was promoted by Charles Kennedy to lead spokesman for the Liberal Democrats on Work and Pensions, a portfolio he had worked in since 1999. He continued in this position until being appointed as Liberal Democrat Health spokesman in 2005. At the end of 2006, he started a new role co-ordinating the party’s manifesto for the next general election. In the first reshuffle after the leadership election, he was appointed Liberal Democrat Environment, Energy, Food and Rural Affairs spokesman. Following Gordon Brown’s reshuffle in October 2008, he shadowed Ed Miliband in the newly formed Department for Energy and Climate Change. On 8 January 2009 Nick Clegg announced his “General Election Team” and an “economic recovery group” with Webb appointed as Work and Pensions spokesman.


Given his increasing profile and popularity within the party due to his role as the manifesto chair, he was seen as a probable candidate for the social liberal grouping’s vote in the future leadership election. Simon Hughes had been the previous standard bearer in the leadership elections in 1999 and 2006. On 17 October 2007 the website Bloggers4Steve announced that Webb had received enough nominations from MPs to run. Despite this, on 18 October Webb announced he was not running and would be backing Nick Clegg for leader.


Webb was one of the first MPs to have a blog and a website, and in 2004 his website, which made use of SMS technology, was commended in the New Statesman New Media Awards and, in February 2005, led him to win the inaugural Hansard Society E-Democracy Award. He also recognised the emerging potential of online social networks by joining MySpace and Facebook, two of the biggest. He is one of the contributors to the Orange Book (2004) and is the author of a chapter in The Future of the NHS.


At the 1997 General Election Webb was elected as MP for Northavon, just north of Bristol, overturning a Conservative majority of over 11,000. He increased a 2,137 majority to 9,877 in the 2001 Election and again to 11,033 in the 2005 Election.


Webb was born in Birmingham to Brian and Patricia Webb, and attended the local comprehensive school, Dartmouth High School, before going on to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Hertford College, Oxford. He then worked at the Institute for Fiscal Studies in London, where he specialised in researching into poverty, taxes and benefits. In 1995, he became a Professor of Social Policy at the University of Bath.


On 10 July 1993, Steve Webb married Helen, a curate at his local church in Clapham. A year later, the couple moved to Bristol; they have two children.
