The Labour party has turned down the offer of Cabinet places from the recently elected Independent Bristol Mayor.
After further careful consideration and after listening to a wide range of views across Bristol, and the wider Labour Party, we have decided not to enter the cabinet.
We will support the Mayor when we agree with his decisions, and we want to be free to offer constructive alternatives when we believe a better solution is available.
We will continue as a Labour Party to work with the local communities we represent, and to do our best for the people of Bristol."
