Seven Labour resignations came on Monday, with Joan Ryan adding her name to the list a day later. 

On the opposite side of the Commons chamber three Conservative MPs also stepped down yesterday. 

Mr Morgan described those who left Labour as ‘skilled Parliamentarians’ and added it is ‘important we take stock and have time to reflect on why resignations have taken place’.
