The British Labour Party has cancelled its annual conference, it announced on Tuesday.
The conference was scheduled for September and was cancelled due to the new coronavirus (Covid-19).
“Our priority is the safety of members, staff and visitors to our events and the need to protect the public’s health,” a Labour spokesperson said. “In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have therefore decided to postpone this year’s annual and women’s conferences.”
