After the referendum result, I pledged that I would do all I can in Parliament to make sure the wishes of the people of Harlow and of the United Kingdom are respected.
On 24th June, I said: “I pay tribute to the many Harlow residents who voted for leave and also the smaller number who voted to remain. Given that the vote in Harlow was so decisive, as MP I will make it my duty to ensure that residents’ clear and definitive wishes are followed through in Parliament.”
Yesterday, the Prime Minister confirmed that Brexit really does mean Brexit, that Britain will leave the EU, the single market, the customs union, and will not be subject to European law.
This also means that Britain will have complete control over our immigration policy and the British Government will decide who is able to stay in our country. She said “the message from the public before and during the referendum was clear: Brexit must mean control of the number of people who come to Britain from Europe. And that is what we will deliver”.
The Prime Minister also said that the deal she makes to leave the European Union will be subject to a vote in Parliament, where MPs and Lords will be able to decide either to accept the deal she has made, or to just leave the EU. “I can confirm today that the Government will put the final deal that is agreed between the UK and the EU to a vote in both Houses of Parliament, before it comes into force”.
