Yvonne has today welcomed confirmation that Andy Burnham MP has secured the necessary nominations from fellow Labour MPs to go forward onto the ballot to be the next leader of the Labour Party.

Yvonne said, "This is great news for party members and trade unionists who want to be able to back Andy in the forthcoming leadership campaign. I am really pleased that Andy's campaign has resonated with fellow MPs and that he can now take his message to the wider Labour movement and the country."
