They will rightly expect a high standard of representation going forward. I am delighted that today the members of the local party have put their trust in me to deliver that for them.

“I want to thank the Bristol South Labour Party for their vote of confidence in me. I am excited about working together, and with the wider community, to show that only the Labour Party have the understanding of the challenges facing Bristol South, and the ideas to pursue the opportunities.”

Dawn Primarolo MP said:
