Salford and Eccles CLP

Ballot papers have now been dispatched to decide who will be the Labour candidate in the new seat of Salford and Eccles.

We've got to choose between Hazel Blears and Ian Stewart and this has come about as a result of the boundary commission reducing the number of seats in Greater Manchester by one - leading to the merger of the bulk of Salford Constituency with half of Eccles.

It’s a rotten position for local party members to be in and I hope we can rapidly get over any division it causes.

When its over we need to rapidly get on with building up the local party and doing well in the local elections.

The result will be announced on Saturday January 19th.
