Statement on the Resignation of the Sevenoaks Conservative Association Chairman

Statement from Michael Fallon MP

We are all sorry that Polly has resigned.  At the Executive Council meeting last Friday I thanked her for her work. I updated members fully on the Brexit negotiations and voting.

Leaving without a deal has never been the government’s policy.  It was not the Leave Campaign’s policy: they made clear there would have to be a transitional period rather than a cliff-edge.   We must do everything possible to avoid the damage of new tariffs, however temporary, and to minimise any possible disruption to our businesses here in Kent. 

I remain committed to implementing the result of the referendum but I could not support the original Withdrawal Agreement. I support the Prime Minister’s efforts to get a better deal.
