30th August, 2017 11:45 am

This is the statement released by Welsh first minister and Labour leader Carwyn Jones in response to Kezia Dugdale’s decision to step down from the Scottish Labour leadership:

“I’m very sorry to see that Kezia is stepping down as leader. She’s done a superb job in the toughest of circumstances and brought Scottish Labour back from the brink. The party will always owe her a debt of gratitude for that.

“I enjoyed our working relationship and together we worked successfully to establish a more robust and permanent place for the devolved parties within Labour structures. I wish Kez all the very best for the future.”
