Community congratulates Richard Leonard

18th November 2017


Commenting on Richard Leonard’s election as leader of the Scottish Labour Party, Community’s Assistant General Secretary, John Paul McHugh said:


“Community congratulates Richard Leonard on his election and look forward to working closely with him to help return Scottish Labour to power.


“Community’s members have suffered as a result of cuts to Scotland’s public services and the lack of a proper industrial strategy that supports our manufacturing base. Only Scottish Labour can reverse this decade of decline.


“We now need a Scottish Labour Party that is united and focussed on winning the next Holyrood election. After the division of a leadership contest, it is vital that all parts of the party pull together and seek to win back the trust of the Scottish electorate.”
