Starmer to pick new Shadow Welsh Secretary

Christina Rees MP
Labour Party

The Labour MP for Neath, Christina Rees, has confirmed on Twitter she will not be in Sir Keir Starmer's front bench team.

Ms Rees, who had been shadow Welsh secretary since February 2017, tweeted: "I’ve just spoken with Keir about his plans for a new-look shadow cabinet and shadow Wales team.

"While sad to not be part of it, I understand completely Keir’s decision. I will now get behind Keir 100% from the backbenches".

Her replacement has not been announced. Sir Keir is currently forming his shadow cabinet and is expected to confirm appointments during the day.

On Sunday, Torfaen MP Nick Thomas-Symonds was named as shadow home secretary.

Neath: Labour hold

Shadow Welsh secretary Christina Rees has been re-elected as the MP for Neath, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Jon Burns by 5,637 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Daniel Williams of Plaid Cymru came third and the Brexit Party's Simon Briscoe came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 3.4 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 37,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the eight candidates, Adrian Kingston-Jones (Liberal Democrat), Megan Lloyd (Green), Philip Rogers (independent) and Carl Williams (Social Democratic Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
