Dawn Primarolo

The Right Honourable Dawn Primarolo (born May 2, 1954) is a British Member of Parliament for Bristol South. She is a member of the Labour Party and has been Paymaster General since 1999; she was previously Financial Secretary to the Treasury.

She was first elected to Parliament at the 1987 general election, after her constituency party de-selected the sitting MP Michael Cocks. At the time she was regarded as a left-winger and is still often sarcastically referred to by Private Eye magazine as "Red Dawn", but is now a New Labour loyalist. She is a former member of Avon County Council.
