Ruffley launches online European Constitution referendum

Tuesday, 24 May, 2005

In view of the referendums that are due to take place within the next few weeks in both France and the Netherlands, David Ruffley has launched his own online referendum on the proposed European Constitution. The latest polling suggests the voting will be evenly split in both countries and will be a close run thing.

David said:

'I think it is vital for the British people to have their say on what is one the major issues of our time. The present Government are refusing to give a date for the referendum in this country but I am determined to make my constituents aware of this issue and to give them their say.

'Any of my constituents can give me their views by logging on to my website at and filling out my survey. I value greatly their views and hope to hear from as many as possible. '
