Flynn jokes his new Labour shadow cabinet job can 'end at any time'

The new Labour Shadow Welsh Secretary Paul Flynn took to the frontbench on Tuesday to debate the Wales Bill in the House of Commons.

But he joked that the job may be short-lived.

"It's not the best job I've ever had. It's a zero-contract job, zero-pay job and zero-hours job which could end at any moment," he said.

Mr Flynn was appointed following the resignation of Llanelli MP Nia Griffiths over the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, who remains in post despite a no-confidence vote against him.
