They will join incumbents, MPs Sharon Hodgson, Pat McFadden, Rachel Reeves, Jonathan Reynolds and John Spellar, taking the total to 11.

LFI’s chair, Steve McCabe MP said: “I’m delighted to welcome my colleagues as new LFI vice-chairs. Together with our existing group of LFI officers, they demonstrate the widespread support for LFI that exists across the Labour party.

“The LFI officers group represents a wide-range of parliamentarians, united by our support for Israel and a two-state solution. I look forward to working with our new vice-chairs – and all our supporters in Parliament – to continue to oppose antisemitism and stand up for Israel.”
