New General Secretary

"The Co-operative Party is searching for a new General Secretary after the surprise announcement that Peter Hunt plans to leave the post next month to set up a Westminster-based public affairs consultancy.

Mr Hunt will be joined in the new venture by Matt Ball, currently Parliamentary Officer with the Party, who is also working his notice and will leave his post on March 3rd.

Peter Hunt told that he wanted a new challenge after ten years in charge of running the Co-op Party's affairs, but said he would continue to be involved in the co-operative and mutual sector and will stay on as Chief Executive of the think tank and advisory body Mutuo."
