Standing Up And Ensuring We Deliver Brexit

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.I pledge to honour the 2016 referendum result, the largest mandate in the history of British politics. 

I passionately believe that Britain's best future lies outside the European Union and I look forward to the opportunities this will create. 

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 in May 2018 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. 

I am pleased that our new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is showing real leadership and is committed to delivering upon the referendum result - leaving the European Union- with a good deal or no deal by October 31st. 

I welcome his strong commitment to this pledge and look forward to the UK being finally free from the EU after these long years.
