Julie asks the Government to ensure Burnley is not worse off after Brexit

2 Dec , 2016  

Yesterday I spoke in Exiting the European Union Questions and asked the Secretary of State to make efforts to ensure that Burnley will not be financially worse after we leave the European Union. I asked the following:

“Although I voted in the referendum to remain, I fully accept the outcome of the democratic election and my focus now is to ensure that the people in my constituency are not worse off post-Brexit. Given that we have benefited from EU funding to the tune of around £5 million a year, may I seek a guarantee from the Minister that the Government have a plan to ensure that those resources continue to come to my constituency post-Brexit?”
