Monmouthshire Campaign Launched!

Parliamentary Candidate Catherine Fookes officially launches Campaign to win back Monmouthshire for Labour

The launch took place at Monmouth Priory on Saturday 23 March, ahead of the General Election due this year.

A large and enthusiastic audience of Labour supporters welcomed Catherine's eloquent and powerful speech, as well as hard-hitting addresses from former Monmouth MP Huw Edwards, the MP for Newport West, Ruth Jones, and Jane Mudd, the Labour candidate for the upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner election.

While recognising the challenge of overturning a Conservative majority of more than 10,000 in the Monmouthshire Constituency, Catherine confidently set out Labour's priorities for the country, including our plans for the economy and environment.

She stated, "After fourteen years of the Conservatives, the country is crying out for change. The Tories have failed on the economy and have failed on living standards."

"There is not a household, business or institution in our county that is not being impacted by Conservative mismanagement."

"For the sake of our country, we must get a Labour Government in Westminster – and to do that we must win seats like Monmouthshire."

Labour's campaign in Monmouthshire aims to address issues such as the cost-of-living crisis and the environment. Catherine is committed to achieving a stronger, fairer, and greener Monmouthshire.
