Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn joined Afzal Khan to support his campaign for the Manchester Gorton by-election. He met members at the campaign centre and visited local businesses on Stockport Road.

“I was delighted to come to Manchester today to support the Labour campaign for Manchester Gorton,” said Corbyn. “Afzal will be a brilliant MP for Manchester Gorton, working day in day out for the people who live here.

“I was really pleased to welcome the leader of the Labour Party to Manchester today in support of my campaign,” said Afzal. “Tory cuts are hitting Manchester hard. I will stand up for what our communities deserve and fight the Tory Government’s plans to slash funding for our local schools. I have high aspirations for our young people so I will fight for real opportunities and ensure access to quality education, apprenticeships and jobs.”

Corbyn added: “I joined Afzal on a walk around and met with local people and small business owners. It highlighted how he is rooted in the community and will always put the people of Manchester first. He has my full support and I look forward to welcoming him to Parliament in a few weeks.”
