although the Pontypridd MP is backing Andy Burnham in the leadership contest, he has not ruled out serving under Mr Corbyn.
“Unlike others, Owen seems to be keeping his options open. If he wins, Jeremy Corbyn would want to unite the party behind him as much as he could.
"Owen’s an existing member of the Shadow Cabinet with experience shadowing the Treasury. With Chris Leslie gone, he could easily become the Shadow Chancellor – and if he is seen to do a competent job it could be the making of him. He’s very ambitious, and when Jeremy stood down from the leadership, he would be in a good position from which to make a bid for the top job himself.”
“Owen is on holiday and not able to be contacted on this occasion.”
