In 1972, he worked for Senator George McGovern in his presidential election bid against Richard Nixon and on Hilary Clinton's Presidential Campaign in the New Hampshire Primary Election in January 2008. From 1973-75 he was a committee member, Political Action Officer and Secretary of Oxford University Conservative Association and a member of the Oxford Union.

Mr Burns was Member of Parliament for Chelmsford from June 1987 April 1997, Member of Parliament for West Chelmsford from May 1997 - April 2010 and has been Member of Parliament for Chelmsford since May 2010. Mr Burns was Parliamentary Private Secretary to Timothy Eggar MP and the Rt. Hon. Gillian Shephard MP at the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food until July 1994. He has also been Assistant Government Whip (1994-1995), Lord Commissioner of Her Majesty's Treasury (1995-1996) and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Health (1996-7). He was a member of the House of Commons Health Select Committee from 1999 2005.

In September 2001, Mr Burns was appointed Shadow Health Minister and was reappointed to this position in May 2005. In December 2005, David Cameron appointed Simon an Opposition Whip.

Mr Burns is interested in American Politics, collecting political books and swimming. He has a daughter, Amelia, and a son, Bobby.

Born in 1952, Simon Burns is a former journalist and company director, and since 1997 Member of Parliament for West Chelmsford. He was MP for Chelmsford between 1987 and 1997. A graduate in Modern History from Worcester College, Oxford, he has been active in politics since 1970. His interest in American politics is reflected in his role working for US Senator George McGovern in the 1972 Presidential election bid and working for Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign in New Hampshire in January 2008. Since his election as MP in 1987 Simon has held a number of positions including Assistant Government Whip, Lord Commissioner of Her Majesty's Treasury, and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Health. He served as Shadow Minister for Health from 2001 to 2005, before being appointed an Opposition Whip.
