Neath Labour MP suspended by Labour Party following allegations of bullying

CHRISTINA Rees the Neath Labour MP has been suspended by the Labour Party and has lost the party whip in the House of Commons.

The MP was a former shadow Welsh Secretary when Jeremy Corbyn was Labour leader.

According to newspaper reports local party members in the constituency have accused Ms Rees of bullying.

In a statement to The Guardian, she said:

“There has been a complaint made against me to the Labour Party which is under investigation and I am therefore under an administrative suspension until the process is concluded.

Sitting as an independent MP she will join two others from Wales – Jonathan Edwards MP for Carmarthen East and Dynevor and Delyn Rob Roberts MP.
