Deputy leadership

I am delighted that my fellow Labour MEPs elected me yesterday evening as their Deputy Leader, a position that became vacant as a result of Claude Moraes moving on to become Chair of Parliament’s committee that deals with European police and justice cooperation.

It was a contested election, so I am especially pleased to have received the confidence of my fellow members. I pledged to work hard to make the Labour MEPs an effective force in Parliament, continuing to punch above our weight, to help secure a Labour victory in the general election and vigorously to join in the debate about Europe in our country, where misinformation currently abounds.
