Conservative MP Does Not Speak For Wycombe In Referendum

Conservative MP Steve Baker who has led calls to leave the European Union is coming under pressure from residents in his own patch who wish to remain in the European Union.

A new group launches this Saturday called 'Wycombe In Europe' and they are taking to the streets of High Wycombe to meet with residents and shoppers.

Campaign Organiser Ian Morton said:

"A group of us have got together to make clear that Steve Baker MP is not speaking for Wycombe when he campaigns to leave the European Union. We strongly believe that Wycombe's prosperity and future is more secure by remaining in Europe. Many of our local firms trade with Europe and many European companies have their base in Wycombe. Steve Baker is on the wrong side of this argument.


"But it is not just trade which is at risk, we all have fairer and safer working conditions as a result of being in the EU. By working with our partners across Europe we can tackle the big issues such as climate change, human trafficking and crime which do not stop at our borders. If we vote to leave we will be entering uncharted waters, taking a risky step into the unknown. Our children and grand children deserve a better future than this. Wycombe is Stronger In Europe, we want a Britain that leads in Europe not leave it."

Campaigners will be meeting local residents in High Wycombe Town Centre on Saturday 19th March from 9am to 4pm.
