Shadow energy positions reshuffled
A new shadow energy secretary is in place and the post of shadow energy minister vacant after the resignations of Lisa Nandy and Alan Whitehead.

Labour’s Lisa Nandy resigned as shadow energy secretary yesterday and was replaced by Barry Gardiner who has previously held the post of shadow energy minister as well as positions on the energy and environment select committees.
Gardiner’s appointment also followed the resignation of Alan Whitehead from his post as shadow energy minister yesterday. No replacement for Whitehead has yet been announced.
The movements in the shadow cabinet are among the most recent in a wide-ranging shadow cabinet reshuffle in the midst of a vote of no confidence in Labour’s party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
