Winchester Labour are strongly campaigning for a Remain vote in the upcoming referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union. Members are working as part of Labour In for Britain as well as with the cross-party Britain Stronger in Europe to encourage local voters to back Britain as a leader in Europe.
Vice-Chair Andy Adams said 'It is clear that Winchester, Hampshire and Britain are better off in the European Union. We face many challenges but our MEP Anneliese Dodds works hard to ensure that the EU works for our region and that we take the lead in ensuring that is responsive to our needs. Thousands of jobs in our county are linked to our EU membership and leaving would put so much in jeapordy. Those campaigning for Brexit believe that leaving the EU will solve so many problems when in reality it will solve none. By an overwhelming majority our local members are supporting a Remain vote.'
