This week Labour began a three-month tour of the country to listen to public concerns on immigration while the party rethinks its policy agenda.
Over the next three months, Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Immigration Minister will visit every part of the UK to hear people’s views on immigration policy and its impact on local communities.
Next Thursday, Keir will be visiting the Northern region. As part of the day we’re holding a policy round-table event at our Head Office in Newcastle especially for Labour Party members.
The policy forum will take place from 5.30pm on Thursday 11 February at Labour Central, Kings Manor, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE1 6PA
Keir Starmer MP, said:
“This is not intended to be an easy or comfortable exercise. It is a genuine attempt to listen to and learn from the public on the issues of migration and refugees.
“I will spend the next three months visiting different parts of the UK, listening to the arguments and seeing for myself both the advantages and challenges that migration brings in different places.
“There are many, varied and legitimate views on migration across the Labour party and the UK. Many Labour voters and supporters are worried about migration and their concerns are our concerns.”
This event is now fully booked
