Constituents have contacted me following speculation as to when the UK will leave the European Union. This matter has received heightened interest because the Government has proposed an amendment to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill which would make it absolutely clear that Britain will be leaving at 11pm on 29 March 2019 (being midnight in mainland Europe). Those who are reluctant about Britain leaving the EU do not want this hard deadline imposed and would rather amend the Bill to permit a later date being used (or no such date at all).
This week I was pleased to join the All Party Parliamentary Group for Breast Cancer for a discussion with the Health Minister, Steve Brine, and the Chief Executives of Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now about cancer treatment and prevention.
