People’s Vote

24th October 2018

Thank you for your email regarding the UK’s decision to leave the EU and a second EU referendum.

As you are aware the British people voted in record numbers to leave the EU in June 2016 and this was endorsed by the two main parties in the 2017 General Election who received 87% of the popular vote and furthermore by 76% of MPs who voted to trigger Article 50.

I believe this country will be perfectly capable of prospering outside of the EU but I hope that we will negotiate an exit deal that will ensure that we remain not only economically close to the EU but also in other areas such as security and the environment.

I appreciate you have strong feelings on the referendum, but the Prime Minister has been absolutely clear that there will be no second referendum. With 17.4 million votes to leave the European Union, more people voted for Brexit than have ever voted for anything else in the UK. The public delivered a clear verdict and my colleagues and I will continue to implement the referendum result and to make a success of it.

1. The UK passed the world’s first Climate Change Act over a decade ago with cross-party support. This gave us both a framework to set statutory carbon budgets and set up the independent Committee on Climate Change.

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
