This CLP notes:


On 15th January, Theresa May’s deal went down to a historic defeat in Parliament.

On 16th January, the government won a vote of confidence, meaning there will not be an immediate General election.

Any public vote on Brexit must include an option to remain. Labour should campaign for such a vote – and campaign to remain and reform.


This CLP believes:


The threat to London’s communities from Tory Brexit is four weeks away and constitutes an emergency.


In February: London NHS trusts warned a no deal Brexit would require ‘major incident’ procedures to protect medical supplies and patient safety; NHS staff from Europe are leaving faster than they can be replaced; the JCWI said the ‘settled status’ scheme risks London’s 1.2 million EU nationals suffering the Tory ‘hostile environment’ experienced by the Windrush generation; Coram Children’s Legal Centre said hundreds of London’s looked-after children without documentation cannot register; employers said post-Brexit immigration rules will stifle London’s economy; the LSE reported falling service industry investment, risking London’s £140bn tax contribution, long-term austerity for public services and economic decline that will negatively affect living standards for generations.


This CLP resolves:


That our elected representatives campaign to stop the Tories’ reckless Brexit;


That our London Labour MPs vote in Parliament for extending Article 50;


That London Labour MPs vote at every opportunity for a public vote on the result of negotiations for EU withdrawal, with the option to remain in the EU.
