Rosena Allin-Khan has stepped back from her position as shadow cabinet minister for mental health
Rosena Allin-Khan has resigned from Labour’s front bench on the day Keir Starmer is carrying out his shadow cabinet reshuffle. Allin-Khan had held the position of shadow cabinet minister for mental health.
In her resignation letter, Allin-Khan said: “It has been a pleasure to serve as the shadow cabinet minister for mental health over the last three and a half years. As discussed previously, and in our call earlier, you made clear that you do not see a space for a mental health portfolio in a Labour cabinet, which is why I told you many weeks ago that I would not be able to continue in this role.”
Keir Starmer did not appoint anyone to replace Allin-Khan in his shadow cabinet reshuffle.
