I’m delighted to have received the full support of Labour Party members and affiliates in Houghton and Sunderland South.
It has been the privilege of my life to serve the area I love. I will continue to work hard for my constituents, and be your local voice on the national stage.
I’ll be proud to represent Labour at the next General Election, with our plan to reboot our economy, revitalise our public services and reenergise our communities. Only Labour can provide the fresh start our country needs.
