Maria Eagle MP

FIGHTING FOR GARSTON AND HALEWOOD

News

Alison McGovern, Luciana Berger, Louise Ellman and I are calling for a ‘People’s Vote’ on the UK’s final deal. Together with Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson we have signed a joint open letter calling for Theresa May’s final deal with Brussels to be put to the public. This letter comes a week after a similar one was signed by five Labour MPs in the North East.

We think that a bad Brexit deal would be catastrophic for Labour’s northern heartlands and the NHS. Tory ministers do not have “a mandate to force a bad Brexit deal on the people of Merseyside”. Even with a free trade deal GDP growth could be 8% lower in the North West which “would be catastrophic for already-stretched public services including our NHS”.

The House of Commons is set to get a vote on Mrs May’s deal later this year.

But the Merseyside MPs said 'Whatever you think of Brexit, there’s no denying that it’s a big deal, and we believe that the 'people are therefore entitled to have their say on the deal before irrevocable steps are taken.'

Many of my constituents have been directly affected by the exploitative use of leasehold contracts on new build houses, forced to pay out extortionate amounts of money for ground rents and maintenance charges. Yesterday in the Chamber, I asked the Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government what was being done to stop this.

The Tories treatment of the Windrush Generation is a national scandal, its time for the Home Secretary to resign. This Government’s policy of creating a “hostile environment” for migrants into the UK has led to thousands of people who have lived and worked in Britain all their lives being denied access to public services, losing their employment and even being detained. Watch the video below for more.
