Catherine West MP has arranged a post-Brexit open public meeting on Thursday 24 November at 7.30pm at Hornsey Town Hall.
Catherine said: “Five months on from the EU referendum, the Government has done very little to set out what Brexit will actually mean for our country, our businesses and our community. It’s not good enough. The electorate did not give the Tories a blank cheque to negotiate a deal that puts jobs, workers’ rights and our economy at risk.
Voters in Hornsey & Wood Green overwhelmingly voted to stay in the EU and we have a right to know how the Government who called this divisive referendum will bring our country back together, stand up for the rights of EU citizens currently living here, protect our economy through difficult times ahead and reassure the international businesses that employ hundreds of thousands of UK workers.
On Thursday 24 November, I will be holding a post-Brexit open public meeting at Hornsey Town Hall, chaired by Ivana Bartoletti, to discuss the EU referendum result and update on the work I’ve been doing to represent my constituents’ views in Parliament. Speakers include Andrea Biondi, Director of the Centre for European Lawand European Employment Relations expert Professor Steve Jefferys. It will be a chance for you to ask any questions you might have about the impact of Brexit and discuss where we go from here. I hope to see you there.”
