Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown welcomes Northern Ireland backstop proposals and urges PM to secure a deal to leave the EU

3rd October 2019

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown welcomes the Prime Minister’s proposals on the Northern Ireland as a significant step towards breaking the deadlock and urges him to negotiate 24 hours a day with every flexibility to get a deal.

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP speaking in the House of Commons, October 2019

I believe that this represents a significant step towards breaking the deadlock, which businesses and the vast majority of the people want to see. Can my right hon. Friend confirm that, in the spirit of goodwill now generated on both sides of the channel, he will negotiate 24 hours a day exhibiting every flexibility to get a deal?

I will strain every sinew, Mr Speaker. In fact, it was only my desire to appear before you and the House today that restrained me from going off to other European capitals and selling this project.

The Cotswolds

Meeting between Chief Constable and Gloucestershire MPs

It has been 1,317 days since the result of the Brexit Referendum, I am sure I am not the only one who feels it has been longer, but tonight at 11 pm the Withdrawal Agreement comes into force and we will be leaving the EU immediately.
