Labour to urgently pursue disciplinary action over Falkirk

After police confirmed earlier today that they won’t be launching an inquiry into Labour’s selection in Falkirk, the party have confirmed that disciplinary action will now be pursued – presumably against the two party (and Unite) members who have been suspended (Stevie Deans and Karie Murphy). A party spokesperson said:

“As a result of the police decision, we will now pursue disciplinary action as a matter of urgency.

“The internal Labour inquiry found there was enough evidence to concern us about membership recruitment in Falkirk.

“We will act on this swiftly and thoroughly as we have done throughout this matter.”
