Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has asked Denton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne, to take the lead in preparing the Labour Party ahead of the next general election.
Gwynne will work with Ian Lavery, MP for Wansbeck, both of whom worked together as Shadow Ministers’ for the Cabinet Office.
The MP who serves Audenshaw, Denton, Dukinfield, and Reddish, is currently leading Labour’s by-campaign in the Cumbrian seat of Copeland and often returns to Westminster to update the Shadow Cabinet and colleagues in the Parliamentary Labour Party.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I’m looking forward to continuing the good work started by Jon Trickett and his team and helping prepare the Labour Party in getting our message to the country.
“Labour wants to see a fairer investment deal for the north, as well achieving the fairest deal possible for workers and business as we leave the EU.
“To help with preparations I’ll be working with my friend Ian Lavery, and together we’ll be coordinating the party for national campaigns and elections”.
