Campaigning for Ryedale

Labour Fights Fracking – Jack Ashton

Jack Ashton, Labour’s Candidate for Malton Ward writes “Climate change is one of the biggest issues facing not only our nation, but the entire world.

The work that Frack Free United is doing must be applauded and we must seize this opportunity to continue the fight here. As a Labour candidate I am proud to fight fracking, a needless and polluting venture.”

“Since becoming a father, the environment has become all the more important to me. It means growing up in good health for my daughter now and the inheritance of a sustainable world for her future.

The area I grew up in was one of farming, tourism and countryside. I want to offer my daughter the same opportunities I had.”

Constituency Special General Meeting 2nd February 2019

Uniting to Stop a Tory Brexit

Ahead of the crucial votes this month this CLP calls for unity of the Labour Party in opposition to Theresa May’s Brexit deal which fails to meet even the lowest standard of the Labour Party’s six tests. We welcome the great strides made by the Party Leadership and MPs to safeguard the UK from a reckless plan, and we call on the party to take imminent action to prevent this Tory Brexit when the Government fails to secure the majority needed. This CLP echoes the voices of thousands of members across the UK and the unprecedented number of CLPs who submitted Brexit motions to conference, in calling for the Party to take the strongest line possible with the Government to prevent more uncertainty and to prevent the clock ticking down to a crash out of Europe.

This CLP supports Jeremy Corbyn in his efforts and agrees with him when he said, “the EU has been very clear: there are no more negotiations, clarifications or meetings.” The Tories delayed the vote for such a time as to make negotiating impossible. There is now no time for equivocation. This CLP echoes conference and party policy and supports the leadership and the work of our MPs in their calls for a general election. When the government fails to secure the support needed to pass their Brexit plan, Labour should immediately call for a general election and if this is not successful Labour will call for a final people’s vote on the deal with remain as an option.

In solidarity with our Party Leaders, this CLP Resolves:

1. To demand and prepare for an immediate general election on the failure of the Tory Brexit plan.

2. Labour must campaign for a public vote on Brexit with an option to stay in the EU, and include such a vote in our manifesto if there is a General Election.

3. (If an election is not immediately possible) To call for a people’s vote on the options available including the option to stay in the EU.

4. To notify the Party Leadership, the NEC, the NPF and other relevant bodies of this motions passing. 

No additional resolutions have been received so the Agenda is simply to discuss the motion from James Ellis and Rosie Adams plus any amendments which are submitted to me by Friday. The resolution plus our existing Constituency policy and the existing Party policy are attached.  The Secretary will bring copies of any amendments to the meeting.  

The meeting is on 2nd February 2019 at Ryedale Community and Leisure Centre, Bowling Lane, Scarborough Road, Norton, YO17 8EG, starting at 11.00 am finishing by 1.00pm. Disabled access and toilets.
