Speaking after Theresa May waltzed into Leeds to deliver a speech to Tory activists this evening, Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves said:

“Theresa May has been Prime Minister for nine months, yet this is the first occasion in all that time she’s bothered to come to Yorkshire. People here aren’t fools – she can’t just rock up at election time and demand their vote after completely neglecting our area throughout her time in office.

“In my constituency alone the school cuts her Tory government’s planning will mean 100 fewer teachers. Our A&E departments have patients waiting hours on trolleys. Nestle in York is losing 181 jobs as we start to feel the impact of the extreme Tory Brexit – why isn’t she there trying to do something about that?

“The people of Yorkshire have never needed strong Labour voices to stand up for them in parliament more than they do now.”

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on the government to respect the vote in the Lords amending the Article 50 legislation to protect the status of EU Nationals living in Britain.

In Yorkshire and the Humber alone, almost 7,000 EU nationals work in social care or the NHS.

The government has signalled its intention to seek to overturn the Lords' amendment in the Commons.

Jeremy Corbyn is continuing to coordinate EU-wide efforts by socialist parties to protect the rights of UK citizens living in the EU and EU citizens living in the UK.

The Labour Leader said:

"EU nationals, who have made their lives here, are welcome here, their rights should be guaranteed. Labour voted for it in the Commons; we beat them in the Lords.

“And now it is time for Theresa May to guarantee the rights of all EU nationals in this country. People are not bargaining chips.

“Over 50,000 EU nationals, including 10,000 doctors, work in our NHS.

“Our NHS needs all their talents.”
