AN MP is calling on public input to secure a referendum on Britain’s relationship with the European Union.
Bob Blackman, Conservative MP for Harrow East, is urging people from Harrow to help the Conservatives in their bid to secure the first EU referendum in 40 years.
This follows the launch of prime minister David Cameron’s new campaign website, ww.LetBritainDecide.com, which makes it simple for people to join the campaign to back Tory MP James Wharton’s private members bill about to go through parliament, which will pave the way for a vote in 2017.
Mr Blackman said: “People feel the EU is heading in a direction they never signed up to.
“That is why Conservatives want to give Britain a clear vote – in or out – before the end of 2017, after a full renegotiation.
“A draft bill to make this happen will soon be debated by MPs but, crucially, it needs the support of other political parties to pass. Britain needs everyone to build public pressure on this. That’s why we are launching LetBritainDecide.com, to give people a voice, and to urge MPs to listen to their constituents.
