I am committed to standing up for the referendum result.
60% of Morley and Outwood, 58% of Yorkshire, and 52% of the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU - Overall, by a majority of 1.3 million people.
We must respect the will of the people and leave the EU in full.
We must leave the Single Market, to stop sending huge sums of money annually to the EU and to end freedom of movement.
We must leave the Customs Union to be free to strike new, bold, free trade deals with our friends and partners across the world, particularly with emerging economies such as India and those in Africa.
We must take back control in every sense, ensuring the laws that govern this great country come from the UK Parliament that is elected by the people who live by these laws, not from an un-elected commission across the seas.
I resigned from my Government role to ensure I was free to speak up for Brexit, and the views of my constituents, I will fight for the Brexit we voted for, the Brexit that can deliver opportunities for our great nation.
