Which Labour selections will be open – and which are All-women shortlist?

Today the party’s powerful Organisation Sub-committee of the NEC (more commonly known as Org Sub) agreed which target seats will be “Open selections” (where all members can apply) and which will be All-women shortlists. The party is aiming for 50% of all target seats to be AWS, so this is the first stage of that process (seats in Scotland, Yorkshire and the Humber, the remainder of the East Midlands and Lancashire will be brought to next meeting of Orb Sub in March).

In total the committee has agreed recommendations for 79 parliamentary constituencies with 39 All-Women Shortlists. All recommendations must go forward to the next full NEC – but it’s unlikely we’ll see any significant changes now that the Org Sub wrangling is over.

Here are the recommendations for future selections that were agreed today (by region):
