Corbyn reappoints Clive Lewis to Labour front bench

From BBC - January 12, 2018

Labour MP Clive Lewis has been reappointed to the party's front bench as a shadow Treasury minister.

Mr Lewis resigned as shadow business secretary in February over wanting to vote against the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill.

He was one of 52 MPs to defy Labour Party orders to back the bill in a Parliament vote.

MPs Preet Gill, Jack Dromey and Karen Lee have also been appointed to the shadow team.

At the time of the vote Mr Lewis had said he "cannot, in all good conscience, vote for something I believe will ultimately harm the city I have the honour to represent, love and call home".

Last month, Mr Lewis was cleared of sexual harassment allegations by a party inquiry.
