On June 23, you will be asked to make a choice: should Britain remain a member of the European Union, or should we leave?
Our decision in this referendum will have a huge impact on our country’s future but there are also local reasons why remaining in the European Union is the best choice for my family and yours.
We believe in standing up for the working people in North Warwickshire and Bedworth whose jobs and communities depend on trade with Europe.
In the West Midlands over 250,000 jobs are linked to our exports to the European Union. Those exports are worth over £12 billion to our economy and mean that 67% of manufacturing jobs are linked to our EU membership. Our membership of the EU is vital to the jobs and economic security of North Warwickshire and Bedworth.
Major employers in North Warwickshire and Bedworth are urging us to remain in the EU.
Jaguar Land Rover and BMW employ thousands of people from North Warwickshire. The bosses of both firms say staying in the European Union is vital. 80% of the cars we make in this country are exported to the EU so you can see why North Warwickshire and Bedworth will be safer, stronger and better equipped to face the future by voting to remain on June 23rd.
If we leave the EU, there’s no going back. We are voting for Britain to remain in Europe because we believe it is in the best interest of working people in North Warwickshire and Bedworth. But this isn’t just our choice – it’s yours too. That’s why we are asking you to vote to Remain in Europe on June 23.
