Son of Labour chief of staff Sue Gray to stand for party as London MP

The son of Keir Starmer’s chief of staff, Sue Gray, has been selected to stand as a Labour candidate at the next general election.

Liam Conlon will run to become an MP in the Beckenham and Penge constituency in south-east London in the election expected to take place in 2024.

Gray, who investigated parties held in Downing Street during the coronavirus lockdowns, quit her position this year as a senior civil servant to take on the job of the Labour leader’s chief of staff.

Since Gray’s job change in September, she has been credited with taking a leading role in attempting to unite the party after splits emerged following Starmer’s decision not to demand a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

She is regularly seen around the parliamentary estate in Westminster, having been tasked with preparing the party – which is consistently well ahead of the Conservatives in the polls – for potentially entering No 10 after the next election.

Her decision to leave the civil service to work for Labour irked Johnson and some Conservative MPs, who claimed a conflict of interests after her involvement in the investigation.
