MPs and activists join Labour for a Public Vote campaign day

Labour MPs, parliamentary candidates and activists are preparing to campaign across the country on Saturday for a referendum and Remain, as part of an action day organised by Labour for a Public Vote.

The campaign day is being supported by Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge; Steve Reed, MP for Croydon North; Janet Daby, MP for Lewisham East; Kate Green, MP for Stretford and Urmston; Martin Whitfield, MP for East Lothian; Ian Murray, MP for Edinburgh South; Stephen Morgan, MP for Portsmouth South; Rachel Eden, PPC for Reading West; John Howarth, MEP for the South East Region; Jackie Jones, MEP for Wales; Anna McMorrin, MP for Cardiff North; and Alex Sobel, MP for Leeds North West.

Commenting on the campaigning events, LPV director Mike Buckley said: ‘This weekend Labour members and voters across the country are heading out to explain to people why staying in the EU under a Labour government is the best choice for jobs, wages, workers’ rights and the NHS.

“The Tories have never cared about real people – all they’re interested in is making their rich friends even richer. Their cavalier attitude towards our democracy, and to the devastating effects of no deal, make them unfit to govern. What we do know is that staying in the EU protects the rights and jobs we have and electing a Labour government will bring the investment our communities and public services need.”
