I have recieved this from Jess Phillips:
I said from the outset of this campaign that I would always be honest. This is why I’m writing to you today. The Labour Party needs to elect a candidate who can bring all parts of our movement together. And at this time, if I am honest, that candidate is not me.
While I am withdrawing from the leadership race I am not withdrawing from the fight. There are vital local elections in May and good campaigns in seats across the country and I want to help you win.
I am planning a series of campaign visits over the next few months and I would love to come to your CLP. Whether you have local elections in May or an important local campaign I would be delighted to come and help.
To win again, to do all of the things that we need a Labour government to do, we must elect a leader who can bring us together, end the division and rebuild trust with the country.
I would like to thank you for all the work you do for the Labour Party and your local community. I hope to meet you campaigning soon!
Very best wishes
Jess Phillips MP
