Responding to the European Commission's Future of Europe white paper, Ashley Fox, leader of Conservative MEPs, said today:
"I am pleased to see President Juncker laying out a series of options for the future of the EU rather than once again simply pushing his tired vision of a federal Europe. It is a little late, but he is finally acknowledging there is more than one way for the EU to proceed.
"Of course, Britain is leaving the EU and the remaining 27 Member States must decide their own future. However, it is in the UK's interest for the EU to be a successful, stable and well-governed partner and ally.
"I sincerely hope this important debate takes note of the clear call for change coming from people across the Union who have lost confidence in the EU as currently structured."
