Alison Seabeck to be shadow housing minister
Alison Seabeck will be announced as the new shadow housing minister, her office confirmed this afternoon.
She will work with Caroline Flint who was appointed the shadow secretary for communities and local government last week in Ed Milliband’s shadow cabinet.
Ms Seabeck, who is the MP for Plymouth Moor View, was parliamentary advisor to former housing minister Nick Raynsford for 12 years, focusing on housing, planning and local government.
The Labour Party confirmed Ms Seabeck would be part of the shadow CLG team over the weekend, alongside Barbara Keeley, Jack Dromey, and Chris Williamson
