YES or NO Questions for MEP Candidates in the East of England.

KLFM News asked the following Yes or No questions from our listeners and staff with the replies reflecting either party policy or the personal opinion of the lead candidate.

In some instances, we have interpreted their longer answers.

In some instances answers were not given, declined, or unclear. We have left those boxes blank but will update if we hear from them.

We have split the table into two to make it easier to read, scroll down for more parties and to listen to each party on why we should vote for them.
