1960 Labour Party deputy leadership election
The 1960 Labour Party deputy leadership election took place in November 1960, after the death of sitting deputy leader Aneurin Bevan.
The ballot coincided with a leadership election, where leader Hugh Gaitskell saw off left-wing challenger Harold Wilson. In the deputy leadership election, Brown and Callaghan both supported Gaitskell, while Lee was aligned with the left wing of the party.
As a result of the first round, Callaghan was eliminated. The remaining two candidates would face each other in a second round.
