Labour's Chris Williamson suggests doubling tax for high worth properties

Chris Williamson and Jeremy Corbyn

He said resigning from the front bench "was not an easy decision to reach" and he had "every confidence that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party is going in the right direction".

At the time, Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl said: "The Jewish community would expect a Labour MP and shadow minister like Chris Williamson to show solidarity with those suffering racism within his own party rather than blaming the victims".

Mr Corbyn said: "I am grateful for Chris' work on the frontbench, particularly on fire safety following the appalling Grenfell Tower Fire".

He is now returning to Corbyn's top team, albeit in a more junior role, as shadow minister for the treasury.

It is one of a number of changes to Labour's shadow cabinet that Mr Corbyn announced today.

"I look forward to working with them in their new roles holding the Government to account, developing policy to transform our country and, with their Shadow Secretary of States, preparing to form a Government that will deliver for the many not the few". He had stressed that his council tax proposal was not party policy. As a Labour councillor in Reading, he has experience of Reading Buses.

Following the furore surrounding his remarks, Lewis tweeted: "I apologise unreservedly for the language I used at an event in Brighton last month".

Clive Lewis apologised after telling someone to get "on your knees bitch" at a Momentum conference.

The Labour MP quit the Shadow Cabinet a year ago over his party's Brexit stance.

None of the new appointments are at shadow cabinet level, where Corbyn has retainedthose on the left of the party who stepped into vacant roles when scores of MPs resigned in the wake of 2016's European Union referendum.

Sherriff becomes shadow social care and mental health minister, exchanging jobs with Jack Dromey, who takes over as shadow minister for pensions.
