On June 23 we will make our biggest decision for a generation. The Bristol South Labour Party is campaigning for a Remain vote because we believe that's what's best for our local area. From jobs to workers rights and the environment, it makes sense for us to cooperate with our partners within the European Union.
Locally, the Filwood Green Business Park, funded by the EU, has brought jobs to Bristol South. Many Bristolians benefit from apprenticeships in our aerospace industry, which relies on our EU membership. Our workers rights are protected across Europe, which prevents a race to the bottom, so everyone across Europe benefits. Our environment is protected by Europe. In Bristol, European Green Capital money has funded new hybrid buses, whilst nationally environmental regulations make our countryside more sustainable.
From a Labour point of view, the arguments are clear. Stay In Europe, reform it, and work in solidarity with your neighbours to make Europe even better.
