In Europe In Work

The Liberal Democrat European election roadshow has dropped in on Maidstone bringing a message of the number of jobs that rely on our trading relationship with the EU.

In Maidstone and the Weald alone, 5,800 jobs depend on trade with the Continent.

Catherine Bearder said: "The Lib Dems are the party of "In" because we believe that being in Europe means being in work.

"We fully accept that the EU needs reform but as Britain emerges from the worst recession it has ever known, now is not the time to put those jobs at risk."

Catherine and Kent-based Antony were joined by Jasper Gerard, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Maidstone.
