David Reed (politician)
In 1970, he was elected at the age of just 25 as Member of Parliament (MP) for Sedgefield in County Durham. However, the constituency was abolished for the February 1974 general election, and Reed has not returned to Parliament since. In that redistribution Sedgefield itself was transferred to the redrawn Durham constituency, which was held for Labour by Mark Hughes, who had entered parliament alongside Reed at the previous general election in 1970.
Reed subsequently had a career in journalism and public relations. From 1990 to 2005, he was Director of Corporate Communications for Whitbread.
