Luke Hall, the Conservative MP for Thornbury and Yate has thrown his weight behind the ‘remain’ camp in the forthcoming referendum on Europe.
Mr Hall, who won the seat from Steve Webb in last year’s general election says he will be backing the Prime Minster in his calls for Britain to stay in the EU.
He told Yate and Sodbury Voice:  “I will be voting for Britain to remain in the EU. I believe Britain will be safer, stronger and better off by remaining in a reformed European Union.”
“I understand and agree with a lot of the frustrations around the European Union, but do not believe that leaving would actually deliver us more power or more influence in order to get things done for the people of South Gloucestershire and of our country.”
