Sir Keir Starmer reaches final ballot in Labour leadership race, Leaders Council reports

The Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland has reported that Sir Keir Starmer has received the amount of support needed to advance to the final stage of the Labour leadership contest.

Having won the endorsement of the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers [Usdaw], Sir Keir had acquired the support of three unions and affiliate groups representing five per cent of the party membership, the amount needed to make it onto the final ballot.

The support of Usdaw comes after the Unison union and Labour environmental campaign group SERA had also thrown their weight behind the shadow Brexit secretary.
