NEWS STORY : Labour Win West Lancashire By-Election Comfortably


Ashley Dalton has won the West Lancashire by-election for the Labour Party, with a 10.5% swing from the Conservative Party. The by-election was held following Labour’s Rosie Cooper standing down to become the Chair of Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. She secured 14,068 votes, a majority of 8,326 over the Conservative candidate Mike Prendergast.

Following her victory Dalton said:

“Tonight the people of West Lancashire constituency have spoken on behalf of the country. They’ve sent a message to this Conservative government: they do not have confidence in them to govern or the prime minister to lead. The people of Lancashire have put their trust in Keir Starmer’s Labour. We’ve provided hope, a hope that we can build a better Britain, which means a better Lancashire”.
