Bill Wiggin MP has asked his constituents to back the EU Referendum Bill. 

Conservatives this week invited the public to ‘co-sponsor’ a draft law underpinning an EU referendum; supporting James Wharton MP’s EU Referendum Bill that was launched on Wednesday 19 June. 

If successful, the Bill will lead to the first public vote on Europe for 40 years, after a renegotiation for a new deal in the EU. The date for the referendum will be announced by Government no later than 2016. 

Co-sponsors will be able to back the Bill using a newly innovated online co-sponsoring form as part of the campaign. 

North Herefordshire MP Bill Wiggin, already a co-sponsor, said: “Conservatives want to give the British people a say. That’s what this innovative campaign will help us to do. 

“If you care about giving millions of Brits a vote on Europe for the first time in 40 years as I do, then please visit and join me in co-sponsoring our Bill, and fight for change.”
