Leadership Debate - Glasgow 25 August 7pm


Choose Labour’s next Prime Minister

Over the coming weeks and months Labour members and supporters will choose our candidate for next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

During the leadership election the two candidates will take part in a series of live debates organised by the Labour Party and media organisations. You will be able to watch the Labour Party debates live on this page — on your computer, smart phone, tablet and TV.
