Jonathan Reynolds, MP for Stalybridge and Hyde, has been promoted to the role of Shadow Climate Change Minister in today's reshuffle of the Labour frontbench.
Mr Reynolds, who has been the MP for Stalybridge and Hyde since 2010, will be taking over the Shadow Climate Change brief from Luciana Berger MP.
Mr Reynolds said: "I am absolutely delighted to be taking up this role. Climate Change is a hugely important issue and represents one of the most significant challenges of our time. It is a challenge Ed Miliband and the Labour Party are determined to meet, and I know this is an area of considerable personal interest to Ed.”
”In addition, the role comes with a wide-ranging list of responsibilities, and I will be seeking to do all I can to hold the Government to account for not easing the cost of living crisis in Britain.”
Until his appointment as a shadow minister, Jonathan served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Ed Miliband since 2011, and was previously an Opposition whip.
