One of Cumbria's new MPs is on the list of 20 that have been selected to propose their own ideas for legislation.
Simon Fell, the Conservative MP for Barrow and Furness, has been included among those who could be allowed to present a Private Members Bill.
But only the first seven are guaranteed significant time to make their pitch to the House of Commons... and Simon Fell is number 19.
Two of the Labour candidates who failed to win seats for their party have been talking about the changes in the political landscape that have left Cumbria with only one seat not occupied by a Conservative.
In Barrow and Furness Chris Altree blamed a combination of anger over Brexit delays and concerns about Jeremy Corbyn for losing the constituency.
Yes, the shipyard is safe and secure but we've got areas of this town with high poverty, children growing up in poverty, that's what he's got to work on."
In Carlisle, Ruth Alcroft lost to the incumbent MP, Conservative John Stevenson, by more than 8,000 votes, and In a speech afterwards, she said that he must stand up for Carlisle in Westminster.
I want to see an MP who stands up in Parliament and ask for support for the costs of Central Plaza so it's not paid for by the people of Carlisle, or why, four years after Storm Desmond, we are still waiting for the first phase of flood defences to be completed."
Simon Fell has been elected as the MP for Barrow & Furness, beating Labour's Chris Altree by 5,789 votes.
The Conservative Party overturned a 209 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.
Loraine Birchall of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Ged McGrath came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 2.9 percentage points since the last general election.
More than 46,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Three of the five candidates, Loraine Birchall (Liberal Democrat), Ged McGrath (The Brexit Party) and Chris Loynes (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Right at the outset of the election, we were told Workington Man - a rugby league-loving leave voter - would be crucial to the outcome.
He was someone the Conservatives needed to nab from Labour. And it seems the Tories did win over more than enough Workington men (as well as some women of course).
In the end, they comfortably took a seat they'd only previously held for three out of the last 100 years, removing Labour's Shadow Environment Secretary, Sue Hayman.
The new MP Mark Jenkinson is pretty much the model of the Workington man they had to appeal to, so he probably knew a thing or two about how to reach them.
Add in the Tory victory in Barrow, and Labour are left without a single seat in Cumbria. Lib Dem Tim Farron's Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency is now the only part of the county that isn't true blue.
As in the rest of the North, the Get Brexit Done message seems to have cut through, with Jeremy Corbyn also deeply unpopular on the doorstep.
There's a test ahead though. Brexit could pose problems for the county's industry, and its agriculture. The tourist trade relies on migrant labour. The Conservatives will need to consider these factors as they work out what getting Brexit done actually means.
And their new and old constituents will also expect the party to make good on promises to invest more in the North.
But the county could also get money and powers passed on from London in a renewed push for devolution. They will come with strings attached though - the need to have an election for a Cumbria-wide mayor.
Another poll on last night's showing the Conservatives would hope to win.
If you're just waking up, here is what happened in Cumbria overnight:
- Labour lost Workington and Barrow to the Conservatives which means the party now has no seats in Cumbria
- The Conservatives kept hold of Carlisle, Copeland and Penrith and the Border
- Liberal Democrat Tim Farron retained his Westmorland and Lonsdale seat
Many of the elections us hardened hacks have had to cover in the past have been in draughty gyms, council offices and sports halls, but the backdrop for Barrow's is lovely:
Neither Conservatives nor Labour activists are prepared to call this one.
Counting gets under way in Barrow.
