Lindsay was elected Labour Member of Parliament for Chorley in 1997. Before entering Parliament, he served on Chorley Borough Council, being the youngest ever councillor to serve in Chorley when elected in 1980, aged just 22. During his time on Chorley Borough Council, Lindsay acted as Chairman of the Economic Development Committee and initiated plans for the redevelopment of the Royal Ordnance site now better known as Buckshaw Village.

He also held the post of Deputy Leader from 1994 to 1997, and his time on the council finished on a high as Mayor of Chorley from 1997 to 1998.

During his time in Parliament, he was a member of the Trade and Industry Select Committee and campaigned on a number of issues of concern to him, including defence, farming, trade and industry and tourism.

In 2010 Lindsay was re-elected, to represent Chorley at Westminster for the fourth time. Following this, he went on to become the first-ever elected Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons and Chairman of Ways and Means.  Amongst Lindsay’s other duties in the house he chairs the budget debate.

Outside of politics Lindsay likes to relax at home with his wife Catherine. He enjoys reading, watching sport and in particular rugby league. As former Chairman of Chorley Rugby League Club, the game remains his personal favourite.
