Leeds for Europe, a group campaigning for Britain to remain in the European Union, is hosting a public meeting ‘Brexit – What Next?’ on Saturday 18th March, 2pm in the Council Chamber of Leeds Civic Hall.
The meeting will discuss the likely implications of a UK exit from the European Union and what needs to be done to avert a damaging ‘Hard Brexit’. The speakers will be Richard Corbett MEP and Professor Michael Dougan, an expert on European Union Law from the University of Liverpool. They will speak for about forty minutes, after which there will be time for questions.
There will also be a brief presentation by Leeds for Europe. Founded in October 2016 as a Facebook Group, the group has grown rapidly and now meets regularly and campaigns against Brexit in the city centre every Saturday. It is affiliated to Britain for Europe and is in the process of affiliating to the European Movement.
