Sadiq Khan responds to Bradford West report

28th January, 2013 2:38 pm

As reported on LabourList this morning, there’s a report out today from Democratic Audit on Labour’s shock loss in the Bradford West by-election. Sadiq Khan, who headed up the Labour National Executive Committee panel which carried out an investigation after the Bradford West by-election, has responded to the report, saying:

“The Bradford West by election last year was very disappointing for Labour but we are determined to win the seat back at the next General Election. That is why Ed Miliband visited Bradford several times and set up a panel, headed by me, to launch an immediate investigation into how we can learn lessons from the result and change our Party in Bradford.
 
“We produced a report with recommendations which are being implemented, including a Future Candidate’s Programme for Bradford, which is designed to find a new generation of potential Labour candidates who are leaders in their community. The selection process is changing, there are women and young people’s forums being established, and Labour is determined to be a strong voice for people of Bradford on the issues that matter to them.”
