Labour Party unveil Dewsbury and Mirfield MP shortlist

LABOUR will select their parliamentary candidate for Dewsbury and Mirfield next month.

It is believed three aspiring MPs have made it onto the all-woman shortlist for a general election due in May 2015.

Kirklees Council cabinet member Coun Cathy Scott (Dewsbury East) is on there along with Nasrin Ali, a councillor in Manchester.

Pontefract councillor Paula Sherriff, an NHS campaigner who works for private health firm Virgin Care, also made it.

Dewsbury Labour Party chairman Mike Greetham said: “We’ve got a shortlist. The final hustings and vote will be on November 2.”
