The UK's Withdrawal from the European Union

Thank you for contacting me about the UK’s exit from the EU.

The British people voted in a historic referendum in 2016 to leave the EU. This is what the Government intends to deliver and it is what I will be working to achieve in Parliament.

After we leave the EU, I can assure you that free movement will end, the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice will be reduced and we will no longer send such vast sums of money to the EU. The Government has proposed an implementation period to give companies in the UK and Europe time to adjust to new arrangements and this is a sensible approach to ensuring that jobs and businesses are given time to adjust to the changes.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
