I was honoured to be re-elected in 2014 to represent the South West of England & Gibraltar in the European Parliament. The purpose of this website is to keep you up to date with my work in the region and the Parliament, where it is my job to represent your interests and concerns within the EU.
I am pleased that the Prime Minister has now concluded his renegotiation with the EU. The referendum he promised in our election manifesto will now take place on 23 June 2016. The British people will now decide whether we remain in or leave the EU.
Having considered the matter carefully I have decided to support the UK remaining in the EU. You can read my press release on the subject HERE. I know that there will be good Conservatives on both sides of this debate. I encourage everyone to conduct themselves in a respectful manner in the weeks ahead. On 24th June the Conservative Government will implement the decision of the British people whatever it may be.
