However you voted in the EU Referendum it is clear that things are not going well. The government is stockpiling food, medicines and blood products in preparation for a no deal exit from the EU on the 29th of March 2019.
Sefton council have not undertaken any impact assessments on what Brexit will mean for our local communities and our neighbouring Labour council have supported motion for a People's Vote on the final deal which includes an option to remain in the EU should whatever is on the table be less favourable to the country than what is in place now.
We want Sefton Council to support such a motion too yet so far they have refused. The council also has powers under the Sustainable Communities Act to demand that the government disclose relevant information on the likely impact of Brexit and we want them to exercise these powers as we believe we have a right to know what will happen to us.
We want Sefton Council to support a motion for a People's Vote on the final Brexit Deal which includes an option to remain in the EU. We also want the council to request receipt of all government departmental information and analysis pertaining to the impacts upon Sefton’s communities and businesses of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, including any information deemed by the government to be confidential, which is their legal right.
