Labour unveils Shadow ministerial teams for Treasury and work and pensions

The Labour Party has confirmed the Shadow ministerial line-ups at the Treasury and the Department for Work and Pensions although specific briefs have yet to be confirmed.

Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury Angela Eagle – appointed last week – will be joined by David Hanson, Chris Leslie and Kerry McCarthy.

Stephen Timms (pictured), Karen Buck, Margaret Curran and Rachel Reeves all take Shadow ministerial posts at the Department for Work and Pensions, reporting to Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Douglas Alexander.

The specific roles of the junior ministers will be confirmed “in the coming days”, a party spokesman says.

Labour claims it has promoted a “new generation” of politicians into prominent positions.

Leader Ed Miliband says: “I am particularly pleased that I could bring in a new generation of talent, whilst also using the experience of a broad range of Labour MPs. This is a team from all parts of the party, which will robustly hold the coalition government to account.”

This follows criticism from Conservative ministers over the composition of the Shadow leadership team.
