Green MEP asks what can Europe do for Plymouth?

Recently elected Green Party MEP, Molly Scott Cato, is to visit Plymouth on the first leg of a tour of the western part of the South West constituency. She has been invited to unveil a plaque marking the first Passivhaus retrofit in Plymouth and attend a questions and answers session on what Europe can do for Plymouth.

Andy Pratt, spokesperson for Plymouth Green Party, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Molly to Plymouth and hear her thoughts on what the EU and the European Parliament can do for Plymouth. There is much misinformation and a lot of distortions peddled on questions over Europe. Our public meeting provides an opportunity to hear from an MEP who knows and understands the benefits of being part of the EU, but also, as a Green MEP, is someone working hard to reform it from within. We invite people to come along and hear and judge for themselves what Europe offers Plymouth and to ask challenging questions; Molly is never one to duck a difficult question!”

Molly Scott Cato said:

“I am keen to draw attention to the many benefits that the EU has brought us in Plymouth and the South West whilst acknowledging we need radical reform. Too often the EU works in the interests of corporations rather than ordinary citizens and I am working hard with the other 49 Green MEPs to shape a Europe that works for the common good.”

The meeting will take place in the evening at Plymouth University [1] and a large audience is expected. Earlier Dr Scott Cato will unveil a plaque marking the first Passivhaus retrofit in Plymouth and meet the designer Peter Warm [2].
