Labour NEC member says mandatory re-selection needs to be discussed

Rhea Wolfson, one of the six Jeremy Corbyn supporters elected to the party's ruling National Executive Committee, says there should be "a more healthy conversation around re-selection".

Ms Wolfson told The World at One's Martha Kearney that the ability to reselect MPs regularly was an "important tool that members should feel that they can use if they need to".

The Unite trade union has voted for Labour MPs to face mandatory reselection every five years.
