Sheffield MP Louise Haigh appeared on BBC Question Time tonight.

The 28-year-old Sheffield Heeley MP for Labour, elected in May, appeared on the BBC One politics debate show at 10.35pm.

She was joined by Conservative energy secretary Amber Rudd, UKIP’s leader in the European Parliament Roger Helmer, Sun and Spectator columnist Rod Liddle and historian Simon Schama.

Louise told the panel that she is backing the UK staying in the European Union, citing that job losses could be on the cards if the UK left the EU.

She said: “I am a firm supporter of Europe. The progress that has been made because of our membership of the EU is immense.”

She agreed that access to workplace tribunals is important, warning of a potential ‘race to the bottom’, adding: “There is a major issue with access to justice in this country including slashes to legal aid that prices people out of justice.”
