Chris Davies, the Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Brecon & Radnorshire, is urging residents to help the Conservatives in their bid to secure the first EU referendum in 40 years.
This follows news that the Conservative Prime Minister, David Cameron, has launched a new campaign website - www.LetBritainDecide.com - which makes it simple for people to join the campaign to back the Bill about to go through Parliament, which will pave the way for a vote in 2017, after a full renegotiation.
www.LetBritainDecide.com aims to build public pressure, to give people a voice, and to urge MPs from other parties to listen to their constituents.
Chris Davies said:
"The people of Britain must have a vote on our EU membership. It's been nearly 40 years since the British people last had their say on Europe. People feel the EU is heading in a direction they never signed up to.
"That is why I and the Conservatives want to give Britain a clear vote - in or out - before the end of 2017, after a full renegotiation.
"A draft Bill to make this happen will soon be debated by MPs but, crucially, it needs the support of other political parties to pass. Britain needs everyone to build public pressure on this. That's why we have launched www.LetBritainDecide.com - to give people a voice, and to urge MPs to listen to their constituents.
“Neither the Lib Dems or Labour are supporting us Conservatives in giving the people of Britain a say on Europe. Our local MP and AM here in Brecon & Radnorshire, Lib Dems Roger Williams and Kirsty Williams, should hang their heads in shame. Perhaps the people of Brecon & Radnorshire can convince them to change their minds. I urge everyone to sign up today at www.LetBritainDecide.com and make your voice heard.”
