What we stand for...

The people have spoken and have decided that the UK should leave the European Union.

Our job now as Conservative MEPs is to help secure a deal that safeguards Britain’s best interests while maintaining the best possible relations with our European partners.

So long as Britain is a member of the EU Conservative MEPs will remain fully engaged, contributing to legislation, voting in Parliament and representing our country and constituents.

In the longer term we will not turn our back on Europe. We will continue to trade with the EU and co-operate in important areas such as security.

A new chapter in our nation's history is opening. We are committed to playing our part in forging a positive role for Britain in Europe and the rest of the world.

Week ahead

25th March to 29th March

Conservative MEPs are in Strasbourg for the second time in three weeks to attend a sitting of the European Parliament.

On TUESDAY they will oppose EU proposals to scrap the bi-annual clock change and force countries to adopt year-round summer or winter time. Deputy delegation leader Jacqueline Foster describes the plan as "unwanted and unnecessary."

MEPs are also voting on new online copyright laws which aim to ensure that writers and artists are paid when their work appears on internet platforms. 

Brexit will be debated on WEDNESDAY, when Conservative MEPs will also support two important pieces of environmental legislation, one banning some single-use plastic products where alternatives exist, such as drinking straws, cutlery and cotton buds, and the other reducing greenhouse gas emission from new cars by 37.5 per cent by 2030.

On the same day, a report by Conservative MEPs' leader Ashley Fox introducing the first EU-wide regulation of the crowdfunding sector is expected to be approved.
