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.

UK Conservatives in the European Parliament

Week ahead

5th November to 9th November

Conservative MEPs are participating in committee meetings and preparing for next week's European Parliament session. 

On MONDAY the International Trade Committee is expected to propose the parliament approves a trade deal between the EU and Japan, the largest trade deal the EU has signed and one which is likely to form the basis of a future UK-Japan agreement. Conservative MEP Syed Kamall (London) has helped steer the report through parliament. 

The first EU-wide regulations covering the crowdfunding sector, shaped by Conservative delegation leader Ashley Fox (South West and Gibraltar), are set to be approved by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on MONDAY. The new rules should increase cross border activity and open up new sources of finance for small businesses.

On FRIDAY Conservative Defence and Security spokesman Geoffrey Van Order MEP (Eastern England) will address a conference in Vienna examining the EU's role in securing Europe.
