Brexit news LIVE: Leo Varadkar says Britain ‘always welcome back’ as EU departure looms

Keir calls for devolution

Sir Keir Starmer will call for the radical redistribution of power, wealth and opportunity as he returns to the Labour leadership campaign trail.

The shadow Brexit secretary was forced to cancel events when his mother-in-law was admitted to hospital following an accident last week.

He will kick-off a week of campaigning across the UK with a speech in east London on Monday evening arguing for a federal system in which power and resources are devolved.

Sir Keir, a frontrunner in the race to replace Jeremy Corbyn, will call for the end of the status quo – and say power, wealth and opportunity should be put back into the hands of the people.

The Holborn and St Pancras MP will travel to Scotland, England and Wales in the coming days to hear views about how the party can “put power, wealth and opportunity back into the hands of the people”.
