SALFORD AND ECCLES MP APPOINTED SHADOW BUSINESS SECRETARY
 

Star date: 10th February 2017

REBECCA LONG-BAILEY PROMOTED AGAIN BY JEREMY CORBYN

Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey, who only became the area's MP less than two years ago, has been promoted by Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn, to become shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

This latest job will see the Salford MP as the Party's chief spokesperson on fracking amongst other things.

The meteoric rise of Rebecca Long-Bailey holds no bounds as the Salford and Eccles MP has been promoted again by Jeremy Corbyn to shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

She replaces former shadow Business Secretary Clive Lewis who resigned from the opposition Cabinet after voting against triggering the formal Brexit negotiations this week.

The Salford MP was only elected to represent the city in May 2015, and, last year was appointed to Corbyn's Cabinet as shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury (see here). This latest job should see her as chief opposition spokesperson on contentious issues like fracking.

Interviewed by the Salford Star in the week before she became an MP, Rebecca explained her position on fracking*...

"I'm not in favour of it at all at the moment" she said "I don't think we've seen enough of reports from credible bodies to show that it could actually be made safe. Our party stance is that it needs to be regulated but I think that the regulation we'd have to have in place to make sure it was safe for people and the environment would be that heavy that it may potentially stop fracking. There's also the carbon issue and the green issue - should we be really pushing in that direction when we need to decarbonise our environment?"

Meanwhile, Labour Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said of his shadow Cabinet re-shuffle... "We have a wealth of talent in our party and the strength of our shadow team will develop Labour's alternative plan to rebuild and transform Britain, so that no one and no community is left behind..."
