Oxford Labour leaders should back People's Vote


Layla Moran and Oxford's Liberal Democrats are calling on the Labour leader of Oxford City Council to support the campaign for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.

It comes after a vote at Oxford City Council on 23rd July, where a majority of councillors supported a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal - with the option to remain in the EU.

However, several Labour councillors voted against holding a people's vote on the deal, with Oxford City Council's Labour leader Susan Brown abstaining from the vote.

Commenting, Layla Moran MP said:

"I welcome Oxford City Council adopting this motion. The Lib Dems have lead the way on a final say on the deal precisely because of how it will affect jobs, security and Britain’s place in the world. I now call on the other Oxfordshire councils to follow suit."

Summertown councillor Andrew Gant, leader of the Liberal Democrats on Oxford City Council, said:

“It is a shame that many Labour councillors have followed Labour’s lead nationally, supporting the Conservatives in their pursuit of a Hard Brexit or dithering with people’s future.

“It’s now time that Anneliese Dodds MP supports her Oxford East constituents and comes out in support of a People’s Vote, just as Layla Moran MP has.”
