Labour supports the right to strike

Shadow Climate Change Minister Kerry McCarthy has said Labour supports "the right to strike".

She said: "Our general line is that we support the right to strike and if unions have balloted their members and taken a democratic decision to go on strike, theyre well within their rights to do that.

"We also think its right for MPs to go out and talk to the people they represent, which is what Lisa Nandy was doing this week."

Ms McCarthy also called comments made by Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg about Nicola Sturgeon "juvenile" and said that it isnt a constructive way to build a relationship.
