Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - Home&abroad -

MONI­FI­ETH coun­cil­lor Ben Lawrie has been named as prospec­tive Lib­eral Demo­crat West­min­ster can­di­date for An­gus in the event of a snap elec­tion or the next gen­eral elec­tion.

Mr Lawrie said: “Brexit will be the cen­tral is­sue of any snap elec­tion.

“As chair­man of the East of Scot­land Euro­pean Con­sor­tium, I have spent my time as a coun­cil­lor lob­by­ing all lev­els of gov­ern­ment to mit­i­gate the threat that Brexit poses to An­gus, our lo­cal busi­nesses and our qual­ity of life.”

He added: “The only demo­cratic way to re­solve Brexit is a peo­ple’s vote.”
