Jennie Formby (General Secretary) had accused deputy leader Tom Watson, of unacceptable behaviour, for asking that complaints about anti-Semitism be forwarded to him for monitoring purposes.

Watson and Formby
  Formby said his approach would undermine and pollute existing party processes.
  Mr Watson stood by his request, saying that opacity and delay by the party had led to a complete loss of trust. The Labour Party has been dealing with several complaints of anti-Semitism over the last two years.
  Mr Watson emailed all Labour MPs and peers telling them he would be logging and monitoring complaints of anti-Semitic abuse and bullying.
  The Ms Formby copying in all Labour parliamentarians, wrote to him.
  She told him that It is absolutely inappropriate for you to set up a vague parallel complaints monitoring system.
