The party membership is the biggest it has been in my lifetime. There are 400,000 individual members, there's 100,000 affiliated supporters, there are three million affiliated trade union members. It's a very big organisation and I suspect that much of this criticism that you are saying about a crisis in the party actually comes from those who are nervous of the strength of the Labour Party at local level.feedback

Sometimes spirits in the Labour party can run high. Today has been one of those days. That's because we're a passionate party. So I'm going to send a message to all party members: I want to make it absolutely clear, members are an asset, as a party we must do more to involve and empower them. From the smallest branch right up to the leader's office, our whole party must focus on the challenges and opportunities ahead for us in our journey to fundamentally transform this country in the interests of the people of this country.feedback

There was a bit of mischievous misreporting going on there. I was asked if in Westminster we would block the holding of a referendum. I said no, if the Scottish Parliament decided they wanted to have a referendum then it would be wrong for Westminster to block it. There is no ambiguity whatsoever and those that are seeking mischief better go and seek it elsewhere. If a referendum is held then it is absolutely fine, it should be held. I don't think it's the job of Westminster or the Labour Party to prevent people holding referenda.feedback

If a referendum is held then it is absolutely fine, it should be held. I don't think it's the job of Westminster or the Labour party to prevent people holding referenda. No, we're not in favour of a referendum. We've been looking at that and thinking about it, and talking to a lot of people about it. I'm looking at pay-ratio levels within organisations and companies and I think that is a good way forward. That, in turn, would ensure or help to encourage the development of fairer pay within companies.feedback

I will do everything I can to repay the trust and the support, to bring our party together, to make it an engine for progress in our country and the people who depend on the Labour party to protect their interest, to get power and deliver real change in this country. Let's wipe that slate clean from today and get on with the work we've got to do as a party together.feedback

I was democratically elected leader of our party for a new kind of politics by 60 percent of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning. Today's vote by MPs has no constitutional legitimacy. We are a democratic party, with a clear constitution. Our people need Labour party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite behind my leadership at a critical time for our country.feedback

We can't duck the issue of immigration, clearly it was a factor. What I'm totally amazed by is that in the past 24 hours 140,000 people have said they do not want the Labour Party to spend the next two months debating the leadership.feedback
