Brexit

Simon Clarke is committed to delivering the best possible Brexit deal for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland. With two-thirds of residents supporting Britain's exit from the European Union, the opportunities that Brexit provides for our area are huge, and Simon has pledged to ensure these opportunities are grasped.  He wants to see a liberal, free-trading Britain emerge after Brexit, with our laws made in Westminster and our borders controlled by the UK Government.

The video above shows Simon speaking about Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland and Brexit during the EU WIthdrawal Bill debate in the House of Commons (September 2017).

Brexit update and my question to the Prime Minister today

Last night Parliament voted that the Prime Minister should return to the EU to fix the backstop. We need serious changes to the draft Withdrawal Agreement that are legally binding, and that is what she has pledged to seek.

Brexit - A Crucial Fortnight Ahead

Ahead of what is going to be a crucial fortnight in Parliament I wanted to lay out for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland residents (in as balanced a way as possible) what to expect over the next two weeks.
