Conservatives will today invite the public to ‘co-sponsor’ a draft law underpinning an EU referendum; supporting James Wharton MP’s EU Referendum Bill when it is launched today.
If successful, the Bill will lead to the first public vote on Europe for 40 years, after a renegotiation for a new deal in the EU.
Co-sponsors will be able to back the Bill using a newly innovated online co-sponsoring form as part of the www.LetBritainDecide.com campaign.
Commenting, James said:
‘Conservatives want to give the British people a say. That’s what this innovative campaign will help us to do.
‘If you care about giving millions of Brits a vote on Europe for the first time in 40 years, please visit www.LetBritainDecide.com. Co-sponsor our Bill, and fight for change.’
