MORLEY and Outwood MP Ed Balls has unexpectedly become the new shadow chancellor, it was announced this evening (Thursday)
His move from the shadow home office came after the shock resignation, for personal reasons, of Alan Johnson.
Mr Balls, whose wife and MP for Normanton, Castleford and Pontefract Yvette Cooper has replaced him as shadow home secretary, said: “Jobs rising, fuel prices and getting more investment into our area are the economic issues causing concern across the district.
“As shadow chancellor I will do my best to make sure that the views of local families and businesses are put centre stage on the big economic policy debates in parliament and across Britain.”
