Jacqui Smith
(1962-present)

woman and Home Secretary of the United Kingdom (2007-2009)

Aged 59

Jacqueline Jill Smith (born 3 November 1962) is a British Labour politician. She was the Member of Parliament for Redditch from 1997 until 2010, the first female Home Secretary and the third woman to hold one of the Great Offices of State, after Margaret Thatcher (Prime Minister) and Margaret Beckett (Foreign Secretary). She resigned as Home Secretary on 5 June 2009 following her involvement in the United Kingdom parliamentary expenses scandal in which she had falsely claimed that a room in her sister's house was her main home. Smith, the most high-profile figure involved in the scandal, then lost her seat as Member of Parliament for Redditch in the 2010 general election. After leaving parliament, she remained in public life as a political pundit and took up roles in various other sectors, such as health and media.
