Julie Smith co-signs a letter published on Sunday, 8 June in the Observer, calling for a responsible discussion on migration and reminding importance of free movement for Britain.

"Free movement is a right exercised by millions and has made a major contribution to the prosperity of Europe over the past 30 years. It is the key to Britain's continued economic recovery. Competition with Ukip for the anti-immigrant vote threatens to undermine support for Britain's continued membership of the EU."
