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.
Ashley Fox MEP
