It is obvious to most people that our county and district are deeply affected by the direct and indirect influence of the EU.
Many people look for a lead in the vote taking place in June and believe that it is the duty of elected representatives, at any level, to participate in the debate about the coming referendum.
This is far more important than any election or party politics.
The result will directly determine the course of our nation’s path for the next generation.
This is why I will be supporting a motion which states the interests of our residents will be best served by leaving the EU.
