Lewisham Labour calls any EU deal to be brought to the UK Electorate

On 20th July Lewisham’s Labour Council proposed and passed a motion at Full Council calling on Parliament to bring any Brexit deal back to the British electorate.

 Part of the motion reads: “This Council is greatly concerned about the effects of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on the citizens of Lewisham. We believe that the social, economic and political implications of the withdrawal are enormous and far-reaching and will adversely affect the life-chances of all the residents of our borough.”

Cllr Alan Hall, the proposer of the motion, said “I brought this to full council as it is clear that no one knows what “Brexit” really means and it is clear that many, if not all, of the promises successfully put forward by the Leave campaign are going to be broken.

 “The details of Brexit are only now being considered by the Tory government and the voters must be given a chance to vote on the proposed changes to the UK’s relationship with the EU.


“We still do not know what the true price of withdrawing from the EU will be so the motion states Parliament should use whatever Parliamentary mechanisms necessary to give UK electorate a chance to make an informed decision. This includes a General Election.”
