The Labour Party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for the Hampstead and Kilburn seat will be a woman.
The party announced yesterday that the constituency will be included on their women-only shortlist.
The seat is currently held by Labour’s Glenda Jackson who retained it with a majority of just 42 in 2010.
The former Oscar-winning actress will step down at the next General Election which is expected to take play in 2015.
