There’s a lot of talk about whether the UK should stay in or leave the European Union – and you’ll have the chance to have your say in the referendum on Thursday 23rd June.

We’re going to be hosting a debate at head office with representatives from both sides of the argument. If you would like to submit questions in advance please email publicaffairs@asda.co.uk by Tuesday 7th June.

We’ll be uploading the debate to The Green Room after the event for you to watch.
Michael Gove MP will be speaking on behalf of the Vote Leave campaign, and Yvette Cooper MP will be representing Britain Stronger in Europe, with Bill Turnbull, broadcaster and former BBC Breakfast news presenter, as the chairman.

The referendum itself is on Thursday, 23rd June when you’ll have your chance to decide if the UK should stay in or leave the EU – it’s up to you. If you’re not registered to vote, you still have time and it only takes a couple of minutes online. Visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before 7th June. If you’re going to be away on the 23rd June you can apply for a postal or proxy vote.

They understand the emotions, challenges and decisions people face every day and they know that everyone’s experience is different. From the moment someone notices something isn’t right, through their treatment and beyond, their team of nurses, specialists and volunteers will be there.
