THE MP whose Act could prevent a ‘no-deal’ Brexit has visited Otley.

Hilary Benn (Lab, Leeds Central) was in town to show support for local MP Alex Sobel (Lab, Leeds North West) and meet party supporters and residents. He said: “It was wonderful to be back in Otley to support Alex who has been such an effective part of the Parliamentary team that has prevented us from crashing out of the EU with no deal.

“Residents were clearly impressed with this and with his campaigning locally, particularly on education and transport.”

Mr Sobel said: “I’d like to thank Hilary for coming to Otley and taking the time to talk to residents about their concerns. The Brexit crisis has such drastic potential effects so it is important people know how hard we are working to ensure a solution that protects jobs, rights and living standards.”
