Campaign reply - Withdrawal Agreement Bill

A number of constituents have sent me a copy of a campaign email regarding a proposed amendment by Caroline Lucas on Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

Ms Lucas is well known for her opposition to leaving the EU and not honouring the referendum result. In light of the recent general election result it is saddening if not unsurprising that there continues to be attempts to frustrate and confuse the process of leaving.

Hundreds of hours have already been spent debating Brexit and whilst the Bill should go through due process I have every confidence that the matters raised in this campaign email will be fully considered and debated.

Scare stories about plans the government has on the future of the UK outside the EU have always been spurious. Ms Lucas latest contribution is unhelpful.
