Mr Redwood’s intervention during the Statement on the European Council, 24 October

John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): I strongly welcome the Prime Minister’s statement. Will she confirm that this Parliament and the last Government gave the decision to the British people on EU membership, so surely it is now the duty of this Parliament smoothly to implement their wishes?

The Prime Minister (The Rt Hon Theresa May MP): I absolutely agree with my right hon. Friend. This Parliament voted six to one for the British people to decide whether we should leave or remain in the EU. The British people gave their verdict. It is now our job to get on with it and to make a success of it.
