Stephen Williams grew up in the South Wales village of Abercynon in the Cynon Valley. He has lived in Bristol ever since he came to study history at the University of Bristol, where he was also the President of the SDP/Liberal society.
He won Bristol West in 2005, taking the seat from Labour with 38.3% of the vote, in what was described as one of the biggest swings to the Liberal Democrats of the 2005 General Election. This made him the first Liberal MP ever for that constituency and the first to be elected in the city of Bristol since 1935.
On his return to Parliament in 2010 Stephen was appointed the chairman of the Liberal Democrat backbench committee for Treasury matters and was also elected to serve on the newly-formed Constitutional Reform Select Committee. On 7th October 2013 he was promoted to Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
In January 2015 Stephen was appointed to the Liberal Democrat General Election Cabinet as the party's Communities and Local Government spokesperson.
