Stronger In pledges to 'hold Brexit campaigners to account' over promises

Pro-EU campaign group Stronger In has pledged to hold 'leave' campaigners to account for the promises and claims made in the lead-up to the EU referendum, following a consultation with supporters.

Three broad themes emerged from the 3,500 responses to the consultation, including the intention to create a "culture shift" in the UK’s relationship with Europe.

Along with "holding 'leave' campaigners to account for the promises and claims they made during the campaign", a further aim is a campaign to shape the debate in the forthcoming negotiations and ensure the closest possible future relationship with the EU.  

The consultation also found that people wanted to continue volunteering time to Stronger In’s new aims and to grow the numbers of grassroots supporters.

Stronger In executive director Will Straw is to step down from his role later this year, it was announced at the consultation's launch.
