Cambridgeshire's Euro MP Richard Howitt kickstarted Ely Labour Party's campaign to keep Britain in the European Union as he joined activists for a special campaign session.
With bright red posters and leaflets, emblazoned with the words 'Vote Remain', Mr Howitt met supporters and spoke passionately about his desire to remain as part of the union.
He said that Ely and Britain would be left facing an uncertain future if Britain exited the EU and that remaining in was vital for businesses in Cambridgeshire. He also highlighted EU funding to tackle the Ely junction bottleneck and vital EU science funding.
Chair of the local Labour Party Alex Mayer said: "We're delighted to welcome Richard back to Ely. This referendum campaign is about prices in the supermarkets, jobs and security. There is plenty of campaigning going on but The Labour Party has got a unique message to give out. The EU has helped to secure workers’ rights including the right to holiday pay, paid maternity and paternity leave, anti-discrimination laws, equal pay and protection for agency workers."
