Labour MP David Lammy promoted to Shadow Foreign Secretary

Labour has revealed its reshuffled shadow cabinet, with David Lammy being promoted to shadow foreign secretary.

Yvette Cooper has also been promoted to shadow home secretary.

Lisa Nandy has moved from her role as shadow foreign secretary to become shadow secretary of state for levelling up, set to take on Michael Gove.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “The Labour Party I lead is focused on the priorities of the country. With this reshuffle, we are a smaller, more focused Shadow Cabinet that mirrors the shape of the Government we are shadowing.

“We must hold the Conservative Government to account on behalf of the public and demonstrate that we are the right choice to form the next Government.

“I’m particularly delighted that Lisa Nandy will take on the vital role of shadowing Michael Gove and leading on the levelling up agenda.

After 11 years of Conservative mismanagement of our economy, delivering prosperity to all regions and nations in the UK will be a defining mission of the next Labour government, and there will be nobody better than Lisa to lead this work.
