Exiting the EU Select Committee


Guy Verhofstadt - Exiting the EU Committee

I'm encouraged that the European Parliament's stance means Brits working in the EU can still transfer around Europe after Brexit. Watch my questions to Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit Coordinator here:

EU Withdrawal Bill - Immigration

I believe the British people want their MPs to take the decisions over who can come here and work based on the needs of the country, the skills required, and on whether the individuals coming here have them. I don't think they differentiate bewteen those from Croatia, China or the Commonwealth.

EU Withdrawal Bill - Trade

Leaving the EU is clearly a risk - it's not one that all of us thought was worth the potential return - but if we're to make the most of doing so then membership of the EEA and the Customs Union is not the way to satisfy anyone.

Brexit Response: Betrayal or Disaster?

Thank you to all constituents who have emailed me about the EU Withdrawal Bill this week, and the various Lords amendments that we debated for two days.

Voting on The EU Withdrawal Bill

Many of my constituents have been in touch with me recently on issues to do with the European Union and the Withdrawal Bill amendments. What is the Bill about and what are the main issues about the amendments?

Rights for British Citizens in Europe

It's important for British citizens living in Europe to be absolutely clear that the British Government's starting point in the EU withdrawal negotiations was to settle citizens' rights at the beginning, seperately and first.
