Keith supports EU referendum in Leicester East

Posted on January 30th, 2012 in Local News

Today pro-European Keith joined a cross party group of MPs calling for a referendum on the EU. He spoke in support of a referendum alongside Eurosceptic MPs Douglas Carswell, Conservative MP for Clacton and Natascha Engel MP, Labour Chair of the Backbench Business Committee.

The People’s Pledge campaign is to hold by-election style referendums in constituencies around the country on Britain’s membership of the EU. Keith has put Leicester East forward to hold one of the first 100 local referendums.
