Exiting the European Union

Today the Prime Minister gave a statement on the UK's future economic relationship with the EU. Huw's question to the Prime Minister was welcomed, highlighting the shared interest of the UK and the EU in delivering a deal that benefits all. You can watch Huw's question here:  https://goo.gl/6mJxae and read below.


In her message to the European Union, the Prime Minister rightly said that we have a shared interest with it in getting this right. Does she agree that the 498 MPs who gave her the mandate to trigger article 50 have a shared interest in putting the national interest first?

The Prime Minister:

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. As well as Parliament voting overwhelmingly to give people the referendum, it also voted overwhelmingly to trigger article 50, and every Member of this House should be behind the Government as we do what we are doing, which is delivering on that.
