Catherine West MP co-founds new All-Party Parliamentary Group on UK-EU Relations

Catherine West MP is the Secretary and Co-Founder of a new All-Party Parliamentary Group on UK-EU Relations, launched in the wake of Brexit.  The aim of the group will be to scrutinise Brexit negotiations and push for a positive relationship with our European neighbours.  

The constituency of Hornsey & Wood Green had one of the UK's highest remain votes, and more people signed the petition calling for a second referendum than from anywhere else in the country.  

To mark the launch of the new APPG, Catherine West MP wrote a blog for Labour List, setting out the need for a "progressive and positive relationship with the EU".  In it, she said "Brexit must not become an excuse for the Tories to dismantle years of achievements and start a race to the bottom on environmental legislation, protections for workers and consumers. I will fight to protect the rights that guarantee minimum standards for workers in the EU, including paid leave, maternity rights and equal rights for part-time and full-time employees and stand up for the benefits and investment that the EU currently provides."
