Led by Labour Peer Eluned Morgan the House of Lords delivered another blow to the Tory Government by voting 293 to 211 in favour of allowing 16-18 year olds a voice in the EU Referendum.

The battle now moves to the Commons. A campaign is underway to lobby MPs ahead of this crucial vote. LME Members and supporters are urged to write to their MP in support of this measure.

It is also important to campaign to allow 15 year expats a voice in this crucial Referendum. At present, similarly to national elections, UK citizens who have resided abroad for more than 15 years are denied a vote.
