One year on from the vote to leave the European Union, the borough is being urged to make its voice heard in negotiations after 52.8 per cent voted to remain.
After 59.9 per cent of London voters backed remaining in the EU on Thursday, June 23, 2016, Newham voters are being invited to have their say on what kind of Brexit they want in an online survey.
As the UK negotiates with the EU, London Assembly Member for City and East Unmesh Desai is keen to hear what Newham wants from Brexit so he can present his findings to the government and mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
“It is vital local people and local businesses have a voice,” he said. “The government have a duty to listen to what Londoners want out of the deal they’re trying to secure.”
