Welcome to everyone and to our honoured guest Mayor Jones. 

It is a pleasure to be here, although I wanted to start by giving you a tweet posted by my daughter earlier this week:

“2 x broken writs, 1 x snapped thumb, 1 x dislocated finger, 1 x removal of grit in knee, 3 x torn ligaments, 4 x sprained ankles, 3 x asthma attacks, 2 x kdney infections, 15 x flu jabs.  Thanks for fixing me up all these years me up all these years #NHS70”

I strongly believe that we need to respect the outcome of the referendum and the Article 50 process. Read my speech in Parliament during the debate on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill on 13 June 2018 - or click on the photo to watch it.

Since the referendum, I’m afraid in this place and outside, the debate has often been polarised between hard-line Brexiteers, who feel we can walk away without a deal and walk off a cliff edge. And, I’m afraid to say, hard-line Remainers who do not accept the result of the referendum and do want to find whatever way possible to stay in. And that is why I am not supporting Amendment 51 today.

I asked Transport Secretary Chris Grayling whether there should be consequences for the companies involved after they clearly undercut competitors to win the East Coast mainline bid in 2015.
