Labour Party – 2022 Statement on Dismissal of Sam Tarry

A statement issued by the Labour Party on 27 July 2022.

This isn’t about appearing on a picket line. Members of the front bench sign up to collective responsibility. That includes media appearances being approved and speaking to agreed frontbench positions.

As a government in waiting, any breach of collective responsibility is taken extremely seriously and for these reasons Sam Tarry has been removed from the frontbench.
