Did your MEP vote to stop CETA?

Of our eight North-West MEPs, four voted against ratifying the treaty, two for and two abstained. It is no surprise that our two Conservative members voted in favour, but what is more difficult to understand is why the two UKIP MEPs failed to vote against after promising to do so. Steven Woolfe voted against.

After much hum-ing and hah-ing, our three NW Labour MEPs finally stepped up on the day to vote against the deal – even Afzal Khan, who was still undecided when campaigners presented him with a giant letter the Friday before the vote.
