North East MPs promoted to Labour's front bench

  • Chris Williamson and Jeremy Corbyn

Labour MP Clive Lewis has been reappointed to the party's front bench as a shadow Treasury minister.

At the time, Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl said: "The Jewish community would expect a Labour MP and shadow minister like Chris Williamson to show solidarity with those suffering racism within his own party rather than blaming the victims".

In August a year ago, Ms Pidcock told left-wing site Skwawkbox that she had a "visceral" dislike of Conservatives and was "disgusted at the way they're running this country".

Responding to Williamson's resignation, Labour leader Corbyn said: "I am grateful for Chris' work on the frontbench, particularly on fire safety following the appalling Grenfell Tower Fire".

Corbyn said: "I am pleased to make these appointments to strengthen Labour's frontbench team, which is now a government in waiting".

Williamson said on Friday he had not been sacked by Corbyn, and meant to continue defending the Labour leader from the backbenches. He had stressed that his council tax proposal was not party policy.

A Corbyn-supporter, he was regarded as a rising star before resigning as shadow business secretary a year ago after refusing to obey the party's three-line whip and vote for the bill allowing Theresa May to trigger article 50, the formal process for leaving the European Union.

It comes weeks after Mr Lewis was cleared of groping allegations at an event in Brighton last September. This is not Labour party policy, it's an idea I came up with at a local level and it's got a little bit of traction in other parts of the country.

Of the 13 junior appointments announced late on Friday, others include Jack Dromey as shadow minister of pensions, Judith Cummins as shadow minister for worldwide trade, and Paula Sherriff as shadow minister for social care and mental health.
