Kim Leadbeater pays tribute to sister Jo Cox in maiden Commons speech

Labour Party politician Kim Leadbeater has paid tribute to late sister Jo Cox in emotional maiden Commons speech.

The Batley and Spen MP said she would ‘give literally anything not to be standing’ in the House of Commons in place of her sister Jo Cox who was murdered in 2016.
