Clare Moody MEP invites you to a Cornwall Brexit Summit on Friday 13 October from 10:30am-2pm and is kindly being hosted by Cornwall College at their St Austell campus in John Keay House, Tregonissey Rd, PL25 4DJ, and being supported by the Devon and Cornwall Business Council.
The event will see speakers from business, the Council, Parliament and the European Parliament talk about what their priorities are from Brexit for Cornwall. Clare has invited Shadow Ministers to join the event via Skype if they’re unable to join in person.
The event is designed to be a non-political conference giving businesses, community groups, industry and educational bodies in Cornwall the chance to set out their policy asks from Brexit. The summit features presentations from local specialists from different sectors - around the key planks of Cornwall’s economy to create draft positions on Brexit for the county.
Clare Moody Labour MEP for the South West and Gibraltar said:
“Whether you voted Leave or Remain, Brexit is the biggest challenge facing Cornwall and our country and it is vital that the county gets a good Brexit deal. To do that we need a debate on the detail not soundbites. Given the support that Cornwall has received in European funding over many years it is vital that there is an agreed position on a Cornwall Brexit deal that I can put to Government and Shadow Ministers. This isn’t a re-run of the referendum – that happened last year. This event is about setting out clearly what Cornwall’s position on the detail of Brexit should be.
I want to hear from businesses, trade bodies, trade unions, industry, fishing, the University and many more about what specific asks they have in the Brexit negotiations. The final agreement needs to be ratified by the European Parliament, to help inform me, I need to hear from you about what that deal should include.”
