Labour has made some changes to the team leading the challenge against government housing policy.

Tony Lloyd and Melanie Onn have been added to the fold, with Ruth Cadbury and Andy Slaughter heading the other way.

Responding to the news, John Healey said Cadbury and Slaughter were “big losses” but that he was pleased to welcome the new additions to the team.

Tony Lloyd is the MP for Rochdale, with Melanie Onn the MP for Grimsby.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, said: “I’m delighted to be filling Labour’s shadow front bench with a wealth of talent. Our new shadow ministers will bolster the excellent work of Labour’s shadow cabinet and departmental teams.

“These appointments are further evidence that Labour is not just the opposition – we are the government in waiting.”
