Stories involving David Nuttall

MPs warned on EU vote

Conservative MP Mark Pritchard has told PoliticsHome that over 85 Conservative backbenchers are prepared to vote in favour of the motion calling for a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU. Labour MP John Cryer has also said he will vote in favour of the motion.


The Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats will all ask their MPs to oppose the motion, proposed by Conservative David Nuttall, during the debate scheduled for Monday. David Cameron and William Hague are both expected to attend the debate.


MPs to vote on calls for EU referendum

Backbench MPs are to debate whether to vote to have a national referendum on whether the UK stays in the European Union, according to Conservative MP Douglas Carswell.

The scheduling committee accepted David Nuttall's reiterated calls for a House of Commons debate on having a national referendum on EU membership. Speaking at the Commons backbench business committee, David Nuttall cited various petitions having over 100,000 signatures and said the motion had cross-party support.

He noted there is of course a "wide divergence of opinion on this matter" and the motion would produce a "lively and productive debate". The Bury North MP added: "As the Government is opposed to holding a referendum, the only way this motion can be debated is thorough the auspices of your committee."
