Labour Leadership Candidate Visits Wrexham

Andy Burnham MP

Labour leadership candidate Andy Burnham addressed around 80 members of the local Labour Party at a meeting held in the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndŵr University on Sunday 16th August. 

He said the party had been "too out of touch with its grassroots", adding he wanted to see "more staff, more funding for the Welsh Labour party.

"More broadly when we look at the country, I've asked Carwyn Jones to co - chair a UK constitutional convention so that we get the final settlement right, a settlement that does give more power to all the nations of the UK but actually still holds us together as a United Kingdom," he said.

Mr Burnham added: "I put economic credibility at the heart of everything I've been doing".

He also said there is a risk of "disunity" and "Labour could go back to the days of division", saying "I will do whatever I can to hold the Labour Party together".
