Holding the Government to account on Brexit

Ahead of the crucial Cabinet meeting at Chequers on Friday about our future relationship with the EU, Simon Clarke MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland pressed the Prime Minister to confirm that the UK will not find ourselves in a Norway-style situation after Brexit. While outside the EU, Norway is subject to the free movement of people, which is very clearly not what the country voted for.

Simon welcomed the way the Prime Minister gave a strong commitment that we will end free movement and operate an independent trade policy after we leave the EU. Simon is committed to respecting what his constituents voted for and will accept nothing less.
