GLASGOW’S Labour group has brought forward its structural re-shuffle by one month in a bid to find innovative ways of holding the administration to account.

The group’s new leadership team, councillors Malcolm Cunning and Eva Murray, held a discussion with members about how best to “utilise their collective skills and talents”.

Earlier this week Labour said that any changes wouldn’t be announced until after they had been presented to everyone with an update likely to take place in October. As anticipated just three members have kept their original roles.

Labour Group Leader Malcolm Cunning, said: "I want to thank those who have served the group in senior roles over the past three years and are now taking a step back.

“The work they have done, both in administration and in opposition, has never gone unnoticed or unappreciated and I know they will continue to serve Labour and their local communities well.

"The team I have put together represents a balance of experience and fresh talent as well as celebrating our proudly diverse Labour group and city.

"I look forward to working with the new leadership team to hold the SNP minority administration to account and present Labour's bold, progressive alternative that puts Glasgow and Glaswegians first."
