Ashley Fox MEP responds to the European Parliament's Brexit resolution

Responding to today's resolution in the European Parliament, Conservative MEPs' leader Ashley Fox said:

"At this sensitive point in the Brexit negotiations, the European Parliament's resolution is an unnecessary distraction.

"Its negative assessment of the current position neither reflects the current reality nor the views of the EU's Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier, who has welcomed the 'new dynamic' created by the Prime Minister's Florence speech, or Angela Merkel, who hailed the 'good progress' made in the latest round of talks.

"The European Parliament has an important role to play later in the process but for now it should allow the negotiators to do their work and refrain from politicking on the sidelines."
