Scottish Labour deputy: Summer to renew party “wasted” by leadership fight
Scottish Labour deputy leader welcomes greater party autonomy but believes necessary changes have been neglected for internal faction fight
SCOTTISH LABOUR deputy leader Alex Rowley has said that Scottish Labour’s summer has been “wasted” on internal issues in the wake of the moves to grant Scottish Labour greater autonomy.
The comments come after the party’s powerful national executive committee (NEC) agreed to grant the Scottish party autonomy over all internal issues short of finance. The changes need to be endorsed at Labour’s forthcoming conference.
