Frontbench reshuffle – Wayne David given responsibility for constitutional matters

Labour Party

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has been given responsibility on the Labour Opposition frontbench for constitutional and electoral matters.

Wayne David has been appointed to the Shadow Cabinet Office Team with responsibility for constitutional matters. In addition, Mr David will lead on electoral matters and Parliamentary boundary changes. Mr David will also serve as a Shadow Justice Minister and will continue to assist the Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland in shadowing the Scotland Bill. Wayne David will remain a Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Acting Leader of the Party, Harriet Harman.

Wayne David said, “This is a crucial time for the Labour Opposition. I am pleased to have been asked to shadow constitutional issues, which are certain to loom large in the near future. There is the Scotland Bill, the future of the Human Rights Act, the implementation of Individual Electoral Registration, boundary changes, the likelihood of further Welsh devolution and much else besides. It is important to scrutinise and where necessary strongly oppose the Government’s proposals, while, at the same time, laying the groundwork for Labour’s future plans”.
