HK Norman, Baroness Wigan, DBE, PC (born 5 June 1975) is a British politician and former environmental lawyer. A member of Solidarity, she is a member of the House of Lords and a junior minister at the Department for Health & Social Care, as Minister of State for Drugs & Addiction Reform. She has previously served as an MP, primarily in London and in the North West, having been elected for the London List and Central London for the Social Democrats and Labour, respectively, and running twice in Manchester North for Solidarity. She has also served in various cabinet and shadow cabinet postions, most notably as Health Secretary, Energy Secretary, and Shadow Home Secretary. A somewhat controversial figure on the left of British politics, HKNorman had a reputation in her early career for the inadvertant leaking of sensitive information, a matter that led to her expulsion from the Labour Party over the summer of 2020. Since then, however, HKNorman has worked to overcome this repuation, and has now built up a record of advocacy for the reform of laws around drugs and the treatment of addiction.
