Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Labour hustings

- Afternoon summary
That’s all from us for this evening. Here’s a wrap-up of tonight’s hustings from my colleague, Heather Stewart:
Here’s a little reaction from Labour figures to this evening’s hustings:
Important to see that the Newsnight Debate is addressing international affairs.
Despite our party doing so much good in government, the invasion of Iraq – for many – defines the Blair government.
We must ensure it never happens again.

Wish the @BBCNewsnight Labour leadership debate had been longer, but I thought @Keir_Starmer really showed why he’s so far ahead on CLP nominations, and @lisanandy had interesting things to say – I’m feeling hopeful for our party
Labour won’t win again with business as usual.
So proud to be supporting @LisaNandy for Labour leader.
Absolutely love what @Keir_Starmer said about building a strong and united team to lead Labour.
Our movement is about more than one person. It’s about every worker, every member and every voter.
When we stand together to fight injustice, we’re unstoppable. #Newsnight
Wish it had been a longer debate, but #Newsnight showed why @Keir_Starmer is the front-runner, why @lisanandy impresses and why @EmilyThornberry deserves to be on the ballot paper. There has to be a bigger vision for how we’ll change following the four defeats we’ve suffered.
