The Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls visited Crawley and Chatham on May 1st to launch South East Labour’s European and Local Election campaign.
Ed Balls MP also visited businesses in both towns to talk to them about the cost of living crisis and Labour’s plans to tackle the issue.
Labour’s top ranked MEP candidates, Anneliese Dodds and John Howarth, joined Ed on the campaign trail.
Annelise said: “The cost of living crisis is a serious issue for so many people and Labour is the only party with ideas that can make a difference.
“We need a Europe that is focused, not on spending on the Common Agricultural Policy, but on promoting growth and reducing unemployment.
“Labour will legislate to stop abuses of the minimum wage and to prevent bosses only advertising vacancies abroad, and we’d tighten up regulations on rogue landlords.”
Campaign activity will be taking place across the South East until 22nd May. Our candidates will be coming to your area to make sure your voice gets heard.
