The MP for Greenwich and Woolwich Matt Pennycook has today announced that he’s standing down as Shadow Brexit Secretary in Jeremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet.
In a resignation letter the MP states a second child due within weeks as the reason to move to the backbenches.
Pennycook was recently chosen to stand again as Labour candidate for Greenwich and Woolwich.
