European Parliamentary Labour Party

The European Parliamentary Labour Party (EPLP) was the parliamentary party of the British Labour Party in the European Parliament. The EPLP was part of the Socialist and Democrats (S&D) Group. In the final Parliament prior to Brexit Labour had 10 Members of the European Parliament. The EPLP sat as part of the pan-European Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D), along with MEPs from sister parties including the French Parti Socialiste, the German SPD, the Swedish Social Democrats and Dutch Labour Party. Like other national delegations, it had its own leadership and spokespeople representing Labour in Brussels and Strasbourg.


The leader of the EPLP had a seat on the Labour Party National Executive Committee and attended shadow cabinet meetings.
