BBC Radio Leicester interview: why the EU matters

Earlier today I joined Jonathan Lampon on the BBC Radio Leicester Breakfast Show to discuss May's European elections and why the East Midlands is better off because of our EU membership.

I set out the need for reform in the EU to ensure a stronger focus on jobs and growth and tackling the cost of living crisis. Labour will make the case for this reform. Households in the East Midlands are £3000 a year better off because of EU membership according to the CBI.
