Statement: Draft Withdrawal Agreement

I have a copy of the 585-page, Draft Withdrawal Agreement and am reading and digesting every element of it. I do have concerns which I will be putting to the Prime Minister in private.

However, I believe that the British public has put their trust and faith in the political class to deliver on their will as expressed in the referendum and to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019. I will not countenance anything which stops our United Kingdom from leaving the EU.
