Bristol South MP says Labour party decision 'entirely correct'

I believe this decision is entirely correct. Disappointing as it was, Labour did not win the election on the 15th November. The people of Bristol will expect the Mayor to be able to get on with his job and be accountable for his decisions.

Cross-party working with The Mayor, as important as that will be, is not dependent on holding Cabinet places."

– Dawn Primarolo, Labour MP for Bristol South
