Article 50 triggered: ‘We need as much certainty as possible, quickly’

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has triggered Article 50 and started the process of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union by writing a letter following the referendum in 2016.


David said: “Last June people in Northampton voted with a majority to leave the European Union.

“My job is to represent everyone who voted to Remain or Leave, but those divisions must now be set aside to achieve the best deal possible and take this opportunity to build a stronger, fairer Britain – a country that our children and grandchildren are proud to call home.

“I am pleased the Prime Minister said clearly in her statement to the House of Commons that, whilst we are leaving the European Union, we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.

“The negotiations will continue for up to two years and we need these to be fair and orderly and to provide as much certainty as possible quickly.”
