Councillor Terence Smith, Labour candidate for Brigg and Goole
"Having grown up in Brigg and Goole, I know this area extremely well and I have seen the damage that 7 years of Tory rule has done; it’s time for change. Our hospitals are underfunded, our schools are overcrowded, our living standards have been squeezed and things are only set to get worse under a radical right wing Tory government. In a time such as ours, where momentous changes seem to take place every day, the decisions we take matter not just for the next Parliament but also for the next generation. This is why it’s so important to have a voice for the next generation in Parliament making the case for Brigg and Goole’s young people in these vital debates. We can’t allow them to be left behind, a lost generation under Tory rule."

Laura Dover, Scottish Labour candidate for Kilmarnock and Loudon
"As vice chair of Scottish Young Labour I've worked hard to motivate and organise members and I look forward to doing the same in Kilmarnock and Loudoun. I’m standing because I want a Labour government that puts wealth and power back in the hands of ordinary people and investment in vital public services. I fully support Jeremy Corbyn’s programme that will give millions access to decent housing, create jobs and secure rights for workers."

Rhea Wolfson, Scottish Labour candidate for Livingston
"I'm standing because only a Labour Government can guarantee a minimum wage of £10 an hour that allows people to live a decent quality life. Only Labour will invest in in industry to create well paying, secure jobs. And only Labour ensure our public services are run for people and not profit. There is no need for anyone to struggle in this country. No need for a single food bank, no need for a Government that treats people with disregard and disdain. A Labour Government returned on the 8th of June would see lives transformed."
