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

20th November to 24th November

Security, online copyright and helping the developing world are on the agenda for Conservative MEPs in Brussels this week.

On MONDAY Home Affairs spokesman Dan Dalton (West Midlands) unveils plans to close a loophole which currently hampers the sharing of criminal records between EU Member States. A proposed new database would have a wide range of uses, from assisting major terrorism prosecutions to allowing checks to be carried out on non-EU national applying for jobs in sectors such as education and childcare.

Syed Kamall MEP (London) will speak at an event in the European Parliament on TUESDAY looking at how the public and private sectors can co-operate to support projects in the developing world. It has been arranged by Conservative Development spokesman Nirj Deva (South East England).

Also on TUESDAY, Legal Affairs spokesman Sajjad Karim (North West England) will lead Conservative calls for changes to copyright reforms which cover way programmes are transmitted online. He argues that the rules should be limited to news and current affairs programmes as any broader application would threaten  cross border investment.
