The Labour Party boasts more members than all the other parties combined. It doesn’t take an economist to work out that gives us a serious edge over our rivals in the run up to May’s elections. That’s hundreds of thousands of opportunities for face-to-face chats on the doorstep.

That’s why with another unfair Tory budget looming on Wednesday next week, Labour has called an Economy Action Day for tomorrow.

This Saturday, members old and new will come together and let the public know why Labour is the only choice this May. In fact, over 2,500 members have already pledged to take part.

For some new members, this will be the first time they’ve hit the campaign trail and engaged with the public. For more experienced campaigners, Saturday is familiar terrain and a real opportunity to pass on pearls of wisdom.

With Osborne’s budget just days away it is vital we communicate our vision on what a fair economy looks like, Labour believes in an economy that works for all Britain’s families and businesses, not just those at the top. That means investing to create the long term growth we need. This is our agenda for shared prosperity.

Unfortunately the Tories are making the wrong choices. Their decisions – cutting in-work support while failing to invest for the future – are putting family prosperity and Britain’s future at risk.

The May elections are the first steps in realising our ambitions to topple the Tories in 2020. They’re an opportunity to show what we’re made of when we come together and campaign.

With Action Days set to take place in key target areas across the country we as a Party, our members, politicians and of course our leader, Jeremy Corbyn, will be out in force to make sure Labour stands up for you.

I hope you can join in, you can pledge your support and get the details for your nearest event here.

In Wales, Scotland and London, we are focussing on the Welsh, Scottish and Mayoral elections, but we still need your help and you can still sign up.

Seema Malhotra MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury
