Reeves calls out May on record for Yorkshire


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.”
