Oral Questions on Exiting the EU – 26 January 2016


Holding the Government to account on their plan for Brexit continues to be one of my top priorities. Today I was present at Oral Questions for the Department for Exiting the European Union, and asked questions to the Secretary of State, David Davis MP.

My first question was:

When [The Secretary of State for Exiting the EU] plans to publish the Government's plan for the UK's relationship with the EU after the UK has left the EU.

I also asked a follow-up question:

Can the Government please explain to the aerospace industry, the health service, the universities and other employers in my constituency – which account for thousands of jobs – how they should have confidence in this country’s ability to negotiate beneficial international trade deals when we have barely any specialist trade negotiators and have had no experience of negotiating trade agreements for decades?

There is a video below of my contributions and the answers I received from the Secretary of State:
