During the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union’s statement on Tuesday, to introduce the second reading of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, David Morris MP intervened on Secretary of State David Davis’ speech to put on record his views about Brexit going forward.
David Morris MP said:
I thank my right hon. Friend for being generous with his time. Does he not agree that there is no such thing as hard Brexit or soft Brexit? There is just Brexit, and we are going to make a success of it.
In response Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davies said:
My hon. Friend is exactly right. I said last week that I view the terms hard Brexit and soft Brexit as propaganda.
Speaking after voting for the second reading of the bill and voting to give the Prime Minister the right to trigger Article 50, David Morris MP said:
‘The referendum on the 23rd June was won by the leave campaign by over a million votes. I may not have campaigned to leave the European Union but I certainly respect the democratic will of the people in this Country which was overwhelmingly to leave. I am fully supportive of our Prime Minister Theresa May and will be voting for all of the legislation to allow Article 50 to be triggered by the end of March. ‘
