Honouring the referendum result

We need to honour the referendum result – not only to be democratic but also to provide certainty and stability for businesses and economic confidence.

Yesterday I asked the Prime Minister to confirm that we will rule out a second referendum, unlike the Labour party, whose Members seem to be confused as to whether we should be speeding up the process or reversing it. The Prime Minister clarified that it was an important point and reiterated that the British people were given their opportunity to choose, that they chose to come out of the European Union and that is what this Government will deliver.
