When I was elected in June 2017 I made absolutely clear that my priority for Brexit was to secure a deal that works for Bury. A deal which protects rights, secures jobs and strengthens not weakens our economy.
As the EU Withdrawal Bill and associated legislation has made its way through Parliament over the last year, I have spoken out for rights, protections and jobs and I have supported amendments which respect the decision people made whilst acknowledging the need to develop a customs partnership with the EU, secure future access to the single market for British businesses and maintain rights and protections for workers, consumers and our environment at least at current levels.
I have also voted to ensure that our democratically elected Parliament has a meaningful vote on the final deal negotiated by the Government.
There are still months of negotiations ahead and there will be important votes in Parliament between now and the autumn. I am conducting a detailed survey to gather the views of the people of Bury, Tottington and Ramsbottom on Brexit in order to better inform my work on this issue and how I will vote in future debates.
It should only take about 5 minutes and I will carefully consider your views as the Brexit process moves forward.
