How many seats will the Labour and Co-operative Parties win in the next UK general election?

Question

The Labour Party is a centre-left political party in the United Kingdom that has been described as an alliance of social democrats, democratic socialists and trade unionists. The party's platform emphasises greater state intervention, social justice and strengthening workers' rights. Labour is currently the Official Opposition in the Parliament of the United Kingdom, having won the second-largest number of seats in the 2017 general election. As of 2017, Labour had the largest membership of any party in Western Europe.

Since 1927, the Co-operative Party has had an electoral pact with the Labour Party, with both parties agreeing not to stand candidates against each other. Instead, candidates selected by members of both parties contest elections using the description of Labour and Co-operative Party.

The next UK general election is expected in December 2019.

This question asks: How many seats in Parliament will be won by members of the Labour and Co-operative Parties in the next UK general election?

Resolution should cite figures from the Electoral Commission or a UK news source such as the BBC.

This question should close 48 hours prior to polls opening.
