Response to Andy Burnham letter

Yvette has been in the South West today talking to members about the future of the Party and how Labour win again. She has been clear the fight for our Party is not over. Thousands of members have yet to even receive their ballot - and so it's wrong for people to write off this election or to be planning for a time after September 12.

The Labour Party has to do strong checks and follow up any evidence of people who do not support the Labour Party trying to vote in this election. But Yvette is focusing on winning arguments and votes not legal challenges. Yvette will continue to fight for every vote in this election - because there is so much at stake for the Labour Party and the country.
