Labour leadership: Who are Welsh MPs backing?
On Monday the Labour party found out who of the six runners and riders in the leadership contest got the backing they needed from the party's parliamentarians.
Five - Sir Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long Bailey, Lisa Nandy, Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry - received the nominations required, while Clive Lewis withdrew earlier in the day.
Candidates needed at least 22 MPs and MEPs to survive the first stage of the contest.

They will need backing from trade unions and local constituency parties to ensure a place on the ballot paper.
Despite the losses of the general election Labour still have the majority of MPs in Wales, and all 22 will had a chance to nominate.
It follows an election result that saw the party lose scores of seats including six in Wales.
Which Welsh MPs have backed Sir Keir Starmer?
The frontrunner from the Labour nominations is the former boss of the Crown Prosecution Service.
Sir Keir obtained 89 nominations from his colleagues in the Commons and Brussels.
Of those, 13 come from Wales - including most Welsh Labour MPs.

Jo Stevens told BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme all the candidates "have something to offer".
She said Sir Keir would unite the party: "I want to see somebody leading the party who every Wednesday lunchtime each week eviscerates Boris Johnson at the dispatch box.
"I think Keir can do that."
Sir Keir has by far the most nominations from Welsh MPs, while Lisa Nandy has the second largest number of backers from Welsh Labour, with three MPs supporting her.
- Cardiff West's Kevin Brennan
- Newport West's Ruth Jones
- Aberavon's Stephen Kinnock
Mr Kinnock said the election is a "once-in-a-generation opportunity to start re-building trust and support in our heartlands, as the first step to stabilising and strengthening our electoral coalition".
Writing on Politics Home he said Ms Nandy has "a profound understanding of why and how we have got ourselves into this mess".
Emily Thornberry gained 23 nominations including three from Wales.
- Alex Davies-Jones from Pontypridd
- Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney's Gerald Jones
- Llanelli's Nia Griffith
Ms Griffith tweeted that Ms Thornberry had "real verve and experience".
Ms Davies-Jones added: "I wanted to support a woman for leader and her experience, passion and knowledge won me over."
Rebecca Long Bailey received 33 nominations, including one from Welsh Labour.
Beth Winter, newly elected MP for Cynon Valley, tweeted that she was looking forward to campaigning with the MP in Wales.
Jessica Phillips gained 23 nominations including two Welsh MPs - Tonia Antoniazzi from Gower and Rhondda's Chris Bryant.
Chris Bryant told BBC Wales it will be a "phenomenally difficult" task to overturn the Conservative majority .
He said Phillips reaches out "into the community far more effectively than anybody else when you put her on television".
