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

9th July to 13th July

Conservative MEPs are attending a full round of committee meetings at the European Parliament in Brussels this week.

As the Western Balkans Summit takes place in London, Foreign Affairs Spokesman Charles Tannock MEP (London) will on TUESDAY present his progress report on Montengro's bid to join the EU to the Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee. He will praise Montenegro's reform efforts but says more needs to be done with regard to the electoral process, independence of the judiciary and the fight against corruption.

Conservative MEP Daniel Dalton (West Midlands) is leading measures to update the EU's consumer protection policies. An evidence gathering session takes place on WEDNESDAY.

On THURSDAY the Parliament's Special Committee on Terrorism stages a public hearing on the security of critical infrastructure and public spaces. Conservative Security and Defence spokesman Geoffrey Van Orden (Eastern England) is the Committee's only UK member.
