In the news recently there has been much discussion about what will happen if Article 50 comes before Parliament. I want to inform you, that should this happen, I will vote to trigger Article 50. This is because on the 23rd of June this year the majority of British people who voted in the EU referendum, voted leave.
Triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty will however, start the formal process of the UK leaving the EU, leading to two years of negotiations on how this will happen.
With that action, the hard work begins. And it starts with the question ‘what does out looks like?’ This is why I would like to hear your views on what happens next. What type of agreement would you like to see? What would you prioritise in the negotiations? What type of Brexit do you want?
Knowing what you think will help shape my views, so I can best represent you during the next two years of negotiations with EU.
I will be holding a surgery on Friday 9th December, between 3pm and 6pm at St Clare’s Church in Newton Aycliffe, specifically to discuss Brexit with you.
If you would like to make an appointment, please call my office on 01325 321603 to book your slot.
Should you not be able to attend the surgery but would like to share your views on Brexit please complete my survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XR7KLCM
