Jeremy Corbyn has been forced to cancel an appearance at Labour Conference after failing to gain entry.

He was understood to be speaking at the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament's event: "Wages not Weapons".


It is understood that Corbyn never applied for a conference pass.

The event saw speakers say that the "struggle for nuclear disarmament cannot come sooner".

Corbyn has been a vocal supporter of nuclear disarmament, saying he wants to see a "nuclear-free world".

He was listed as a speaker on this morning's event.

But his spokesperson told the Guardian that he had never planned to go.

When asked about Corbyn's absence by an audience member, CND's Kate Hudson said: "We are very proud that Jeremy Corbyn continues to be our vice president".

Corbyn was expelled from the parliamentary party over his response to EHRC's damning report on antisemitism in 2020 and now sits as an independent MP.

In February, Starmer confirmed that Corbyn will "categorically" not stand as a Labour Party candidate at the next general election, saying he "betrayed" the values of the British people.

He said: "Let me be very clear about that: Jeremy Corbyn will not stand for Labour at the next general election, as a Labour Party candidate.

"What I said about the party changing, I meant, and we are not going back, and that is why Jeremy Corbyn will not stand as a Labour candidate at the next general election."

Sir Keir said that anti-semitism is "an evil" and "no political party that cultivates it deserves to hold power".
