Jonathan voted for the UK to leave the EU back in 2016, in the belief that with control of our own borders, the ability to forge new trade deals with global partners, and the freedom to legislate free from Brussels, Britain can look forward to a prosperous future.


He has provided the following statement on the Brexit process to share with his constituents:


I am content with the deal the Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been able to bring back from Brussels and I am pleased that the EU is supporting it strongly too.  It is a deal that protects UK citizens in the EU and those EU citizens who have made their home here in the UK and it is a deal that has outlined a peaceful and prosperous way forward for Northern Ireland and all those who live there.  This deal has my support and I will be voting for it, and the associated Withdrawal Bill, in the House during the coming week of extensive debate and scrutiny.  I would urge all my parliamentary colleagues to do likewise, whatever political party they represent, as I think we now need to bring the withdrawal phase to a conclusion.
