The ruling body of the Labour Party has voted to disband its student wing, Labour Students.
The organisation, traditionally dominated by centre-left university students, was founded in 1971.
Previous executive members include prominent Labour figures, such as current shadow cabinet members Tom Watson and Jonathan Ashworth.
Labour’s NEC unanimously supported a motion tabled by Momentum boss Jon Lansman. Lansman claimed the NEC had never approved Labour Student’s affiliation.
Labour Students has had a full-time chair, based at Labour HQ, for years.
Lansman also claimed the organisation had not paid its affiliation fees to the Labour Party. In a statement, Labour Students said it had paid its affiliation fees as soon as its new committee had taken over.
