Reacting to Theresa May's decision to call a General Election on June 8, Ashley Fox, leader of Conservatives in the European Parliament, said:
"It is vital that the UK enters the forthcoming talks with the European Union united behind The Prime Minister's negotiating stance.
"A clear victory for the Conservatives in a General Election on June 8 will provide the Government with a strong mandate to secure the best deal for Britain and develop a new, deep and positive relationship with our European partners.
"It will provide clarity, end uncertainty and help silence those who seek to defy the will of the British people.
"Theresa May's announcement today is a strong, decisive and important step along the road to delivering a Brexit that works for both the UK and the EU27."
