John Howarth is Labour MEP for South East England. 

The constituency includes Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex - that's a population of more than 8 million adults.

John is working for a future that:

  • Protects the rights and freedoms of all British and European citizens
  • Safeguards jobs and employment rights
  • Enables business to thrive and trade easily

John says: “I want to see a fair deal for the UK and a future that delivers the same benefits we enjoy as members of the European Union.

"This was the promise made by those who campaigned for a 'leave' vote in the referendum and by Theresa May's Conservative Government. They must be held to account on that promise.”
