Commenting, a Labour Party spokesperson, said:
“Officers of Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met this afternoon to discuss the Caller Report and the steps the party will take in response to it.
“The NEC has agreed to take urgent steps to reassure people in Liverpool and demonstrate that we are committed to tackling the problems the report has identified. We will ensure that all candidates standing for Labour in May have the highest standards of probity.
“The Officers have also agreed a review into the long term issues set out in the report, which will be carried out over the next few months.
“Our priority is the people of Liverpool. We want to reassure the public that the Labour Party will do whatever it takes to tackle the problems set out in the report and that we will take action against anyone in the Labour Party who is involved in wrongdoing.
“We also pay tribute to the vast majority of hard-working, decent and honest people working at the council and as elected officials whose dedication will help to pull us though this difficult time.”
