News: BBC Reports Labour Leadership Challenge

3rd August 1988: BBC News reports from Westminster that a leadership challenge is to be launched by far left members of the Labour Party . This follows Prime Minister Neil Kinnock's statement on amending the constitution of the party and the potential removal of Clause IV with its commitment to the nationalisation of industries and the expulsion of Militant Tendency members from the party. Sources from within the party claim left-winger Tony Benn will challenge Neil Kinnock in a leadership election.
