Labour North Conference

Members and supporters of the Labour Party attended their regional conference at the International Centre for Life in Newcastle today. Following an introduction to the stage by Newcastle North MP Chi Onwurah, party leader Jeremy Corbyn addressed the conference reiterating that the north maintains strong Labour support and is an area with many proud traditions. He also outlined his party’s plans for a ‘Northern Powerhouse’, spoke about the NHS, the economy and the forthcoming EU referendum.

Among those speaking or taking part in Question and Answer sessions during the event, which was well attended by members from all across the region, were Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Angela Eagle, the Shadow Business Secretary and Shadow First Secretary of State, Pat Glass, Shadow Europe Minister and Jonathan Ashworth, the Shadow Cabinet Office Minister.

During the conference lunchtime break there was a small demonstration outside the venue held by a number of EDL supporters who displayed a banner opposing refugees entering the country. Police officers were called after some verbal insults were shouted to some Labour members but otherwise the demonstration passed without incident.
