Ynys Môn MP Albert Owen is keen to hear further views ahead of the important House of Commons ‘Meaningful Vote’ on Brexit and in particular the younger generation.
Mr Owen met with a group of young people last week, three of whom did not have a vote in the 2016 Referendum.
“I have had hundreds of constituents contact me in the last six weeks on the Brexit issue and the Prime Minister’s draft agreement with the EU. I value those opinions and in addition, I want to hear from our younger people, many of whom did not have a vote in 2016 but do have a voice and strong opinions. I want to hear from them because frankly, Brexit impacts on them the most”
“Last week I met with a group, they had strong views on the environment, our economy, immigration and another referendum”
“I said in the 2017 General Election that I would collate the views on Brexit and our younger people. I worked to gather views last year, including at the Anglesey Show. Now as we approach the important vote in Parliament, I want to hear their consolidated views. I will be using social media, emails, and meetings and am urging people under 25 to contact me.”
“After all, the younger generation are our future and they should have the opportunity to voice their opinions on the big issue we face. Brexit will shape the future arrangements and is it therefore vital they have a say.”
“Before Mrs. May pulled the vote, I spoke in the debate and raised the issue of our young people. This is an exercise to hear their concerns so I can raise them in the House of Commons on their behalf.”
