East Kent on Friday.
whose bill will create the legislative framework for the In/Out Referendum on
the European Union which the Prime Minister has promised will be held before
2017, had a clear message for his audience:
Whether you want to
remain within the European Union or you want out it is time that the British
People had their say. Only a majority Conservative government after the
next General Election will call the referendum. A vote for any other party will
deny people the chance to decide for themselves which path we want to take”.
bill has passed through all of its stages and is now in the House of Lords
where it is facing opposition from Labour and Liberal Democrat peers.
