Vara urges new PM to deliver on referendum result

25th July 2019

Following the statement by the new Prime Minister, Shailesh Vara raises concerns about our credibility on the international stage if we do not deliver on the democratic public mandate to leave the EU.

For decades, Members in this House across the political divide have been critical of other countries’ democratic processes. Does my right hon. Friend agree that failure to deliver on the public mandate to leave the EU would ensure that our credibility on the international stage was irreparably damaged?

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is a sad irony that the Labour party, which purports to be the party of the people, is now the party that seeks to thwart the will of the people, and it sends a terrible message around the world.
