Brexit (29 February 2019)

 

As the situation in Parliament is changing very rapidly, and you are following these matters closely, please find enclosed the latest response from the Prime Minister:

A meaningful vote on her deal with now take place on 12 March and MPs will now get a vote on delaying Brexit if her deal and a no-deal outcome are both rejected.

 

I do not believe at the moment we should do anything to stop, delay or reverse the UK’s exist from the EU but increasingly it is looking like Parliament will reject no deal and I very much hope we will vote for an amended Withdrawal Agreement which is currently my preferred option.
