Following the Labour leadership announcement, speaking from Liverpool, Daniel Zeichner MP said: "Owen Smith and Jeremy Corbyn have conducted a serious debate across the summer with many thousands of people about the future direction of the Labour Party. We all agree that there is something fundamentally wrong with the direction our country is heading.
 
Britain is at a crossroads. We have a new Conservative Government that is bitterly divided
over Britain's future relationship with Europe and is taking the country in the wrong direction.
 
Now it’s time for the Labour Party to focus on exposing Conservative failure and offering a positive, optimistic programme for the future. 
 
I hope many more people will now join us to help bring the change our country needs."

Residents and staff at the Hawthorns, run by Cambridgeshire County Council have been left shocked after they were moved out of the building in July having been told building work needed to take place.

Cambridge residents will come together to discuss the implications of the Brexit vote on the environment.

A special public meeting has been organised by Daniel Zeichner MP. The free event will be held from 7pm – 8.15pm on Friday 16 September at Cambridge Rugby Club, Granchester Road, Cambridge, CB3 9ED

Due to the need to plan capacity, the event will be ticketed but it is open to anyone who would like to attend. Places can be reserved at:www.danielzeichner.co.uk/brexitenvironment.

Speakers are set to include Fiona Harvey, an award winning Guardian Environmental Journalist, Martin Garratt from Cambridge CleanTech and Kerry McCarthy MP, Former Shadow Environment Secretary.

Many of the laws and regulations that protect nature come from the EU. Some have been incorporated into UK law, but after Brexit they could be repealed.  Other regulations only exist as EU directives and could end abruptly.

Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I don’t think when people cast their votes many were thinking about bees, the birds in their gardens, air pollution and our rivers. Yet the outcome of the referendum will have profound impacts on our environment.

Many people are talking about “red lines” after Brexit, I think it is time to demand some “green lines” from the Government.”
