Vote on Withdrawal Agreement 12th March 2019

Regarding the vote in the House of Commons last night Fiona’s position is as follows:

"There is now a grave risk Brexit could be lost - the choice is this Agreement (however much I dislike it) or the very real possibility of no Brexit - which would be a betrayal of the Referendum vote -  due to the manoeuvrings of anti-Brexit MPs.   Listening to my constituents on their doorsteps over the last three weeks I have received the very clear message they just want Brexit sorted. No extension. No second referendum. Hence my vote yesterday. This Agreement is far from ideal, but it respects, however imperfectly, the democratic vote of the British people to leave the EU - and that MPs must honour."
