Eastbourne’s MP is undecided on whether the UK should leave or stay in the EU.

Prime Minister David Cameron has negotiated a package of changes to the UK’s membership of the European Union and an in/out referendum will be held in late June.

While a number of politicians have declared their support for either the leave or remain campaigns, this week Caroline Ansell explained she had yet to make up her mind and wanted to be in possession of all the facts and hear from constituents before coming to a decision.

Mrs Ansell said: “We are now only a few days into what is going to be an intense, complex and four-month long campaign.

“Like millions of others, I have not yet made up my mind how I will vote and I very much want to hear a great deal more before I do decide.

“I am also chairing an EU referendum debate in Eastbourne in May where I will be listening to more views and I don’t see how I could effectively be involved in that event if I indicated now which way I am going to vote.

“I understand that people may want to know my opinion, but this is an extremely important issue that will have consequences for generations to come, and I want to be in possession of all the facts I can before going in to the polling booth on 23rd June.”
