Batley & Spen MP Jo Cox is inviting constituents to let her have their thoughts on a controversial idea from the government to ban local councils, public bodies and even some university student unions from boycotting “unethical” companies.

This could mean losing the freedom to refuse to buy goods and services from companies involved in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, the arms trade, fossil fuels, tobacco products and a range of other unsavoury activities.

Mrs Cox said: “I believe that this is a gross attack on democratic freedoms. It is our right to boycott unethical companies.

“It should also be the right of local councils and public bodies that we have elected to make their own decisions, free of government control.

“But I want to know what my constituents think.”

MP seeks views on Prime Minister’s integration comments

Jo Cox meets guests at her women's eventBatley & Spen MP Jo Cox is inviting constituents to let her have their thoughts about the Prime Minister’s comments on integration.

The Prime Minister has been criticised for comments he made in The Times newspaper and on Radio 4’s Today programme earlier this week.

Mrs Cox said: “I think the Prime Minister should know better. He chose his words very poorly and I think he risks doing more harm than good and stigmatising Muslims, most of whom are integrated into British life.

“But I want to know what my constituents think and hope they will take a minute to fill in my feedback form.”
