The Labour Members of the European Parliament for Yorkshire and the Humber until we leave the European Union in 2019 are Richard Corbett, who is Leader of the Labour Group of MEPs, and Linda McAvan. They were elected in 2014 and have been very busy working in the EU on our behalf. You can find out a lot about what they have been doing on their websites.
Linda talks about the International Women’s day lunch, speaking out about Donald Trump’s global gag on family planning, Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ and other issues. To read the bulletin go to: http://www.lindamcavanmep.org.uk
2016 has been quite a year. A large portion of my work was focused on the EU referendum, but there were many other issues in both the European Parliament and here at home. You can read about some of them in my 2016 Annual Report here. Thank you for all your support in what was a difficult year. I would like to think 2017 could be a better political year, but with Trump etc, it feels like another roller coaster. We have two important by-elections coming up in Stoke and Copeland, so the fightback starts now.
