Labour MEPs: It’s time to move on from the deal – the battle for Britain’s future starts now

Responding to the deal agreed by European leaders today, Glenis Willmott MEP, Labour’s Leader in the European Parliament, said:

“This deal is all about the EU referendum, but the EU referendum is not about this deal. It will be about whether Britain remains a member of the EU, and about what is best for Britain and best for working people.

“This vote will determine our future, and whether we will continue to enjoy the benefits of EU membership, or suffer the uncertainty and chaos that would follow an exit.

“The campaign starts now, the campaign for jobs, rights and influence. The clock is ticking, and we must now campaign to keep Britain a prosperous, outward-looking nation.”
