This afternoon, Vernon attended the Labour Local Government Conference at the East Midlands Conference Centre on University Park. The Conference is organised annually by the Association of Labour Councillors (ALC) and the Local Government Association (LGA) Labour Group. Vernon is pictured below with members of the Gedling Constituency Labour Party at the conference.
The conference this year provided an opportunity for local Labour members and representatives to come together and discuss policy following the 2015 General Election. Vernon enjoyed speaking with Labour colleague and East Midlands MEP, Glenis Wilmott, about their shared belief that the UK is better off in the EU (pictured below).
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave the keynote closing address to the conference. To read his speech, click here.
