Jeremy welcomes new Scottish Labour Leadership team

Responding to the announcement today of the elections of the new Scottish Labour Leader Kezia Dugdale MSP, and Deputy-Leader Alex Rowely MSP, UK Labour leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn MP said:

“I’d like to congratulate both Kezia Dugdale and Alex Rowley on being chosen to lead the Scottish Labour Party.

“Both Kezia and Alex clearly recognise that there’s a long road back for the party in Scotland, but I think they’re well equipped for the task in hand.

“If I am successful in becoming the leader of the Labour Party at a UK level I look forward to working closely with Kezia, and the rest of Scottish Labour, as we seek to reconnect everywhere for a better kind of politics.”
