Shadow Secretary for Exiting the European Union, Sir Keir Starmer QC, MP for Holborn and St Pancras, has agreed to give a keynote address to our group.
The European Commission and UK Brexit Secretary, David Davis, are at odds over whether and how to settle key issues which the EU says must be resolved before the European Council gives the green light for talks on a trade deal between the UK and EU27 to begin alongside the Article 50 negotiations. The Council vote is due in mid-October and parliamentary debate is starting here on the Repeal Bill, so Sir Keir’s talk will come at a critical and volatile moment.
With the Labour Party supporting continued membership of the single market and a customs union for a transitional period, do join us to hear how Labour intends to interrogate and challenge the Government’s approach to Brexit at Westminster. Sir Keir’s remarks will be followed by a Q&A session.
We expect demand to be high and as our hosts, The Holly Bush, are offering us the room free of charge (and exceptionally on a Thursday), we must on this occasion ask guests to dine from the menu in order to meet the pub’s minimum spend requirement.
When: October 12th 2017 from 7pm
Where: The Holly Bush Pub (Romney Room), 22 Hollymount, NW3 6SG
