MP repeats desire for orderly Brexit following votes


15th March 2019

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has today repeated her desire for an orderly Brexit delivering on the result of the 2016 referendum.

The House of Commons held a series of votes on Brexit this week - Harriett once again voted to support the Withdrawal Agreement and voted against proposals to extend Article 50.

Harriett commented: “I once again voted to support a deal - the Withdrawal Agreement - and I continue to urge my colleagues to do the same.

“I don’t support a second referendum and neither does a majority of the House of Commons. I voted this week against extending article 50 as I think people simply wants us to get on with Brexit, offering certainty for our local businesses who trade with Europe. The only way to ‘take No Deal off the table’, is to vote FOR a deal or to revoke Article 50 and end the Brexit process.

“The process of leaving the European Union means that the date to leave is fixed in law at March 29, and we must leave either with the deal negotiated by the Prime Minister or without a deal. It requires further legislation to leave at another date as well as the agreement of all the other European countries.

“I hope that in the next few days Parliament comes together to support the Prime Minister’s deal and ensures an orderly, smooth, legally clear process for businesses, citizens and farmers. Once Parliament agrees a Withdrawal Agreement, only then would I support a brief technical extension.”
