Owen Smith 'delighted' with shadow Northern Ireland role
Owen Smith has said he is delighted to return to Jeremy Corbyn's frontbench team as shadow Northern Ireland secretary.
The Pontypridd MP resigned as shadow secretary of state for work and pensions in 2016 to unsuccessfully challenge Mr Corbyn for Labour's top job.
He told the BBC he was pleased with his new role, having previously worked as a special adviser to former Torfaen MP Paul Murphy when he served as Northern Ireland secretary.
