EU Elections hustings - London MEP Candidates
NCVO is pleased to invite you to join a discussion with MEP candidates ahead of the European Parliament elections on 22nd May 2014.
This event will be an opportunity for you to engage in a debate with MEP candidates for London; to hear key views, recommendations and offers; and to discuss the changing impact of the EU on the voluntary sector.
NCVO has recently launched a Manifesto to set out our key recommendations and we believe that civil society has a pivotal role to play in addressing many of the challenges.
We want to see renewal of EU spending to effectively focus resources on inclusive growth; simplified EU regulation to ensure that EU rules benefit rather than hinder voluntary organisations; and reform of the EU’s institutions to improve dialogue and accountability.
Among the representatives of the panel are:
- Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP for London (invited)
- Seb Dance, Labour MEP Candidate for London
- Jonathan Fryer, Liberal Democrat MEP Candidate for London
- Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London
- Marina Yannakoudakis, Conservative MEP for London
