54 Labour MPs have made clear their opposition to a December poll by signing up to an amendment that would change the date of the early general election from 12th December 2019 to 7th May 2020.
The proposal would see the election brought forward by only two years, and take place only after another referendum were held on 26th March 2020.
The Labour signatories – which include opposition frontbenchers Roberta Blackman-Woods and Marsha De Cordova – have been joined by ex-Labour MP Mike Gapes and ex-Tory Anna Soubry.
Below is the list of signatories followed by their proposed amendment to the Early Parliamentary General Election Bill.
Susan Elan Jones
Dr Rupa Haq
Preet Kaur Gill
Dr Paul Williams
Marsha De Cordova
Ian C. Lucas
Clause 1, page 1, line 2, leave out “12 December 2019” and insert “7 May 2020, providing the referendum in section (Referendum) has taken place on 26 March 2020.”
