Starmer welcomes new Labour MPs to Parliament

Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer swore in his party’s two newest MPs to Parliament on Monday.

Gen Kitchen and Damien Egan won victories in Wellingborough and Kingswood last week, when they toppled Conservative majorities of more than 10,000.

Praising the two MPs, Mr Starmer said: “They both overturned incredible majorities, the like of which we wouldn’t normally be able to overturn, making history before they’d even been sworn in as Members of Parliament, a fantastic achievement." It comes as shadow health secretary Wes Streeting revealed the party is considering its options on an SNP-led Commons vote on a ceasefire in Gaza later this week.
