EEA Amendment

Thank you for contacting me about the EEA amendment.

As you know, I voted to remain in the EU and I still think that on balance that would have been a better course of action.

But, as I think you also know, I firmly believe that we are now in a position where the most important thing is to fulfil the mandate given democratically by the referendum to leave the EU.  And I don’t believe that there is any practical means of achieving any genuine Brexit while remaining either in the Customs Union or in the Single Market.
