The following statement was passed at our All Member's Meeting on February 23rd 2017.
Vauxhall Labour Party is the voice of Labour Party members in Vauxhall constituency. The party comprises 2,500 local residents that share common values and who promote Labour values and Labour policy in our local communities.
Vauxhall Labour would like to formally disassociate ourselves from the position that our local Member of Parliament has taken in relation to the UK leaving the European Union.
We would like to make it clear that Vauxhall Labour Party:
- Fully supports the Labour Party policy to unilaterally grant residency rights for the 3 million EU citizens already in the UK.
- Fully supports the rights of unaccompanied child refugees to be granted access to the UK (the so-called Dubs amendment).
On these issues we do not believe that our Member of Parliament is effectively representing the views of either our members or our wider communities.
