Second Referendum (Leaving the EU)

Dear Constituent,

Thank you for contacting me about a second referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union.

The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union in line with the result of the referendum held in June 2016. The referendum campaign was fought, turnout was high, and the public gave its verdict. There will be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it, and no second referendum. The country voted to leave the EU and it is the duty of the Government to make sure we do just that.

The withdrawal negotiations have begun and the Government has made it clear that it will seek a withdrawal agreement that works for everyone. This agreement will be put to Parliament before it is concluded.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.

EDWARD LEIGH MP
