Working hard for Wales in Europe

Blaenau Gwent Information Session

EU Information Session Announced in Blaenau Gwent


Welsh MEP Derek Vaughan is holding an information session in Blaenau Gwent on 04/06/2016 to help people understand the EU and what EU membership means for Wales, so they can make an informed decision in the EU referendum.

Mr Vaughan said the information sessions are a chance for locals from Tredegar and Ebbw Vale to ask questions and raise the issues that matter to them:

“With Europe at the top of everyone’s agenda at the moment it’s become clear to me that there are specific issues that people want to raise and understand better.

"I'd encourage people to come along on Saturday with any questions about the EU and what EU membership means for Wales.

"The European Union has done a lot around here. Just in the local council area 380 enterprises have been helped by European Union funding, 310 have been created,  5,060 people have been helped into work and  4,650 people have gone into further learning. One project, the Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone was backed with £8,075,000 of European money and it has revolutionised A-level learning in the area.

"However many people aren't aware of these benefits and the key thing that people are saying at the moment is that they want access to clear information about the EU so they can make an informed decision on June 23rd."
