Port of Tilbury Met

THE MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, Stephen Metcalfe, rose on the floor of the House of Commons to make his feelings known on Brexit.

Mr Metcalfe said: “Whatever happens next, my right hon. Friend will agree that a second referendum would do nothing to move the debate forward and would create further division and confusion. We have had a people’s vote, so let us get on and prepare either to implement a heavily amended deal or no deal and to deliver Brexit on 29 March this year.

Stephen Barclay The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union replied:

“My hon. Friend is right that we have had a vote, and I think his constituents want that vote to be respected, just as mine do. That is what the Government are committed to doing, but we should do so in a way that gives businesses and citizens the certainty that they need. That is what the Prime Minister’s deal offers, and I commend it to the House.
