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.

Ashley Fox MEP

Leader
UK Conservatives in the European Parliament

Week ahead

15th April to 18th April

The last sitting of the European Parliament before the May elections takes place this week in Strasbourg.

On Monday MEPs will debate a series of reports aiming to reduce the need to use public money to bail out failing banks and financial institutions. Conservative MEPs Syed Kamall (London) and Ashley Fox (South West and Gibraltar) have helped steer the legislation, which is expected to be approved on TUESDAY, through Parliament.

A report by Internal Market spokesman Daniel Dalton (West Midlands) updating consumer protection rules will also be voted on TUESDAY. Provisions include greater clarity in online reviews and price comparison sites, a ban on the resale of event tickets bought by 'bots' and a mobile friendly website providing a single source of advice and dispute resolution for consumers.

Mr Dalton presents a further report on WEDNESDAY tackling terrorist content online. It demands that platforms remove terrorist-related posts within an hour of being informed of its presence by national authorities.

On WEDNESDAY morning MEPs debate the EU's offer to Britain of a six month extension to Article 50, so delaying Brexit. Syed Kamall will address the Parliament.
