The Rt Hon Margaret Hodge, MBE

MP

Margaret Hodge was born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1944. After World War II she moved to London with her family, where her father set up the steel-trading company Stemcor, which is now the world's largest privately owned steel-trading corporation. She attended boarding school and then studied economics at the London School of Economics, working in market research after graduating. She first entered politics as a councillor in Islington, and became MP for Barking in 1994. She recently has found a new lease of life chairing the Commons public accounts committee, and has won a reputation for making company bosses squirm by exposing their tax-avoiding tactics.
