The Government is committed to delivering on the result of the referendum and getting Brexit done. The Prime Minister has secured a great new deal, but MPs have forced a further delay.

It has been three years since the referendum, and the British people want Brexit done with no more delay. The Government has been clear that we will be leaving the EU, delivering on the will of the people, and providing the certainty businesses need.

The Government has secured a great new deal with the EU that will allow us to leave in an orderly and friendly way.

This new deal ensures that we take back control of our laws, trade, borders and money without disruption, and provides the basis of a new relationship with the EU based on free trade and friendly cooperation. We introduced the necessary legislation, which passed its Second Reading. Unfortunately Parliament then again voted for delay, rather than a timetable that would have guaranteed, that the UK would be in a position to leave the EU on October 31 with a deal.

This Government is determined to get Brexit done, with no more delays so the country can move forward and focus on the cost of living, the NHS and other domestic priorities.
