Anna Soubry is a British barrister and former journalist, who has been an MP from the constituency of Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire (2010 to 2019). She was a Conservative politician until she joined the now-defunct party The Independent Group, or Change UK. Soubry started her career as a journalist. After she got admitted to the bar, she practiced as a member of the Criminal Bar Association. As an MP from Nottinghamshire, which is primarily a disturbed region, reducing the crime rate and drug peddling in the region always topped Soubry's list of agendas. She has supported several anti-smoking and anti-drug campaigns. She has also been a prominent advocate of the National Health Services (NHS) reforms and the privatization of Royal Mail. She has also supported the Citizens' Advice Bureau, and the HS2 (High-Speed Rail). During the European Union withdrawal referendum, Soubry was against the British exit from the union.
