Batley & Spen MP remembers workers

BATLEY & SPEN MP Tracy Brabin and local council candidates commemorated International Workers’ Memorial Day at Batley’s Memorial Park.

A minute’s silence was held, followed by the ringing of a specially-commissioned bell on Saturday.

Ms Brabin said: “We all need to be safe in the knowledge that when we go to work we will return safely, but sadly that doesn’t always happen because of negligent employers and bad employment practices. We must do all we can to eradicate these bad practices and make sure our workplaces are safe and healthy places to work in.”
