Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew is ‘undecided’ on EU membership, he has said today.
In a statement on whether he thought the country should leave the European Union, Mr Andrew said he would be holding a number of public meetings featuring both pro and anti campaigners to help local residents to make up their own minds. He said:
“I have long asked that a referendum on EU membership takes place as this needs to be a truly national decision, and I am pleased that the Prime Minister has announced this will be the case on June 23rd.
“I remain undecided on how I will vote as I am studying carefully all the arguments and trying to better understand what an exit from the EU would be like in reality.
“I would emphasise that my vote is no more significant than that of my constituents. With that in mind, I will be holding a series of public meetings for my constituents to attend where I will invite pro and anti EU campaign representatives to attend to present their points of view and allow my constituents to raise their questions with them.
“I look forward to what will no doubt be an interesting and varied debate on something that could fundamentally change our country.”
Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves is set to vote to remain in the EU, according to the BBC.
