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

18th February to 22nd February

Conservative MEPs will be shaping legislation in committee meetings and staging a number of events at the European Parliament in Brussels this week.

On TUESDAY Syed Kamall MEP (London) is hosting the first Europe - Muslim World Democracy Forum. Bringing together politicians, academics and community leaders, it aims to help Muslim nations move towards democracy and overcome the tension between the Muslim world and the West. The speakers include EU Security Commissioner Sir Julian King. 

On the same day, a meeting to discuss the use of medical cannabis in the fight against cancer is being staged by Emma McClarkin MEP (East Midlands).

In committee, MEPs are to discuss the negotiating mandate for future EU trade negotiations with the US. 

On THURSDAY MEPs will vote on a series of EU-wide safety features for road vehicles, including improving visibility from lorry cabs to reduce the number of cyclist fatalities. Conservative Internal Market and Consumer Protection spokesman Daniel Dalton MEP (West Midlands) has played a central role in drawing up the new rules as a shadow rapporteur.
