Tommy Sheppard holding public meeting on Saturday
Edinburgh East MP Tommy Sheppard is hosting a public meeting with panellists Professor Nicola McEwan and journalist Simon Pia to explore what happens next for Scotland as the UK prepares to exit the EU.
The meeting provides a unique opportunity for the people of Edinburgh East to hear from academia, journalism and politics about what options lie ahead for Scotland.
Ahead of the meeting Tommy commented: “As Theresa May prepares to trigger Article 50, there are numerous unanswered questions. Despite the Lords successful amendments, it’s likely they’ll be defeated again next week meaning we’ll be leaving the EU with no guarantees on the rights of EU citizens living and working in the UK.
“Nor do we have guarantees on workers’ rights, more powers coming to the Scottish Government or human rights legislation.
“This meeting is an opportunity to discuss these issues and consider what Scotland wants from its future. We might not have all the answers but it’s vital that we keep asking questions.”
Where: Edinburgh Central Methodist Church, Nicolson Square, Edinburgh
When: Saturday 11th March at 2.30pm
