One Nation Labour's Offer

Labour are campaigning in every community in the East Midlands

Labour's European candidates are campaigning in every community in the East Midlands for a One Nation solution to David Cameron's cost-of-living crisis.

A vote for Labour on 22nd May is a vote for:

  • Freezing gas and electricity bills until 2017
  • Building more homes - 200,000 a year by 2020
  • 25 hours of free childcare for working parents of three and four year olds
  • A Compulsory Jobs Guarantee for young people unemployed for over a year
  • Strengthening the Minimum Wage and stopping recruitment agencies hiring just from overses

Britian needs to be on a strong footing, safeguarding jobs and growth for British workers. Businesses across the East Midlands would close with the loss of thousands of local jobs if Britain leaves the EU, a UKIp and an increasing number of Tories have demanded.

In a recent survey for YouGov, one in twenty business owners said that with the UK outside the EU they would face closure. This finding followed cautions against a reckless withdrawal from some of the UK's biggest trading partners and employers.

  • Japan has hinted that the UK risked losing thousands of jobs with Japanese firms if it left the EU
  • Car maker Nissan has said the UK membership of the EU is 'very important' and leaving would be a serious obstacle to future investment
  • Car giant Ford said it would reassess its presence in the UK if Britain were to leave the EU
  • The United States has warned that the UK would probably be excluded from a trade deal worth billions if it left the EU.

East Midlands MEP Glenis Willmott said: "With Britain in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis, Labour would not put all this at risk. Our priority is to reform Europe so that it works better for us."
