On his appointment to additional Shadow Cabinet portfolios today, Barry Gardiner said:

 

"I am delighted to have been appointed as Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade, Europe, Energy & Climate Change and look forward to working closely with the Shadow Foreign Secretary and the Shadow Secretary of State for Business. In this post referendum era where Britain has been overtaken by France, pushing us down from fifth to the sixth largest economy in the world, it has never been more important to re-establish the international standing of the United Kingdom. I will be putting out a strong message that the UK must become the best place for investors who understand that future growth lies in building a sustainable, low carbon economy"

On Thursday, 23rd June 2017 the British public have the opportunity to determine the future of the United Kingdom and whether or not we play a part in the future of Europe. This may well be the most important vote that many of us will face in our lifetime and will, undoubtedly, have a profound impact on future generations.

Many of my constituents will not yet have decided how they intend to vote or may not have had an opportunity to consider the arguments for and against remaining in the European Union. With this in mind, I will be holding a public meeting to allow residents of Brent North1 to question me and so that I can listen to their views before any such vote.
