EU referendum leaflet

I understand your concerns, but it is true to say that the Government has always been very clear that it is in favour of remaining in the EU, while allowing individuals to make their own views known. With that in mind, the Government therefore should be expected to put forward its case.

While I have mixed feelings about the wisdom of their approach, it is the same one that the Government took in the 1975 Europe referendum and the recent Scottish referendum. The EU Referendum Act 2015 also committed the Government to providing information to the public on EU membership ahead of the vote. Additionally, it is certainly the case that when people talk to me they say they want more information on this issue.

In the official campaign period, the Electoral Commission enforces strict rules on spending by campaigning sides, but we are not yet in that period.

Importantly, it is worth noting that when it comes to the referendum, everybody’s vote is equal – my vote is worth no more than anybody else’s.
