On Wednesday 7th October, Sir David Amess, MP for Southend West, spoke at Prime Minister Questions and asked the Prime Minister to ensure that the result of the 2016 Referendum is fulfilled.
Sir David said “Next month, a book that I have written, called “Ayes and Ears: a Survivor’s Guide to Westminster”, will be published. Part of it covers Brexit—and, yes, by inference, everyone will be in the book. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the last general election was not fought on how political parties might handle the coronavirus pandemic, but was categorically about ensuring that the result of the 2016 Referendum is implemented in full? Will he confirm that he intends to see that happen?
The Prime Minister replied “I can indeed. I congratulate my hon. Friend on his new book. I assure him that this country has not only left the European Union, but that on 1 January we will take back full control of our money, our borders and our laws”.
