Polegate’s MP, Maria Caulfield, has welcomed the opportunity to serve on the recently created Brexit Selected Committee, after being elected to the new position by her parliamentary colleagues.
The new Select Committee will oversee and hold the actions taken by the Government in relation to Britain’s exit from the European Union to account.
On hearing the news, Maria said, “I am delighted to have been elected to this important committee by my colleagues. It is no secret that I supported Britain’s exiting the European Union. I am however also aware of the fact that a large number of my constituents voted to remain, and it is important that their concerns are properly taken into consideration.
“I put myself forward for this role so that I was in the best possible position to ensure that the voice of my constituents is heard as the Government orchestrates Britain’s exit from the EU, and I will ensure that this remains the case going forward.”
