REPRESENTING SOUTH EAST ENGLAND IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

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.”
