MORAY PARLIAMENTARIANS TO HOST REFERENDUM MEETING20/06/2016
Moray’s MP, Angus Robertson, and MSP, Richard Lochhead, will host a public meeting on Tuesday 21 June for people who are undecided on the EU Referendum, which voters will be asked to decide on next Thursday.
The SNP representatives will set out a positive case for the European Union at Tuesday’s meeting, which will take place in the Lecture Room at Elgin High School.
Speaking ahead of the meeting Angus Robertson MP said:
“In speeches and campaigning I have been setting out the positive case for remaining a part of the European Union. Tuesday’s meeting is a further opportunity for folk who may be undecided to come along and hear the case for staying in the EU.
“From the fundamental human rights on employment rights that we enjoy and which are protected by European legislation, to the huge importance of the European Market to Moray’s major exporting employers, there are enormous benefits from our EU Membership.
Richard Lochhead MSP said:
“It is telling that many of those campaigning for an ‘out’ vote are the same people who have voted to erode workers rights and who have campaigned to remove human rights legislation.
“In contrast we are setting out a positive case such as the mutual benefits that provide us with access to free healthcare when we holiday in other European countries, human rights legislation, food safety and environmental protection. In addition we also see millions spent every year in the north of Scotland on infrastructure, education programmes, research work and much more besides.
“I would encourage folk who are undecided and looking to hear more about the reasons to remain to come along.”
