The Labour Campaign for Free Movement is seeking signatures and Constituency Labour Party and union motions calling on the Labour leadership to support democracy, migrant rights and the 2019 Labour Party conference decision on free movement: see here (up with other motions here).

This is a response to Keir Starmer saying on 10 January, when asked if Labour would stick to its free movement policy: “I don’t think there’s an argument for reopening those aspects of the treaty”.

A year ago, asked when running for Labour leader whether he would bring back free movement for EU citizens, Starmer said: “Yes of course — bring back, argue for, challenge”.
