Labour unveils its candidates to fight the 2014 European Elections in the North West.
Harriet Harman MP said:
"I am proud that such strong, committed and inspiring people have been picked by ordinary Labour Party members to be their MEP candidates in the North West.
"Like the people they seek to represent, they come from all walks of life and from all the different communities who live here in the North West.
"Unlike David Cameron whose first priority on Europe is appeasing the ever more extreme demands of Tory backbenchers, Labour MEPs will be a powerful One Nation voice who stand up for ordinary hardworking families.
"Their top priority is to be a strong voice in the European Parliament to make sure they get the best deal and bring jobs and growth here in the North West."
Theresa Griffin, Labour North West's top of list for 2014 European Parliament elections, said:
"We have a brilliant team of Labour candidates who I know have the right skills and experience to fight for the best deal for the North West.
"The North West is the most important export region outside of London and the South East, our relationship with Europe matters. Labour MEPs have kept our pledge to the people of the North West to use our influence in Europe and our membership of the EU to deliver results for our region.
"Jobs in our region are dependent on the EU. That’s why it is important to get Labour MEPs elected. We will fight for jobs and growth to boost the regional economy.
"Labours teams for the 2014 European elections will be listening to and working with people and groups across the region to make sure we get the best deal from Europe."
