LABOUR MP Marsha De Cordova has quit Sir Keir Starmer’s shadow cabinet just weeks before the party’s autumn conference.
The former shadow women and equalities secretary said she was resigning “with much sadness” to spend more of her time on her constituency work.
However, the timing of her resignation will raise eyebrows in Westminster with Labour’s autumn conference due to begin on September 25.
The Battersea MP said: “It has been an immense privilege to serve as the shadow women and equalities secretary for the past 17 months.
“It therefore comes with much sadness that I am resigning with immediate effect.
“Having only been elected in 2017 for the historically marginal constituency of Battersea, I would like to focus more of my time and efforts on the people of Battersea.
“I will continue to support Keir Starmer from the backbenches.”
Labour leader Sir Keir thanked Ms de Cordova for her work highlighting the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on black, Asian, minority ethnic and disabled people.
