European Union Referendum

George Eustice has announced that he will back the campaign to leave the European Union. George said, "The Prime Minister deserves huge credit for delivering this referendum and we now have an opportunity to debate our future, how we are governed and how our laws are made. I have been an advocate of renegotiation for fifteen years but, in the end, despite the endeavours of David Cameron, the sort of fundamental reform I wanted to see was not possible".

"I have therefore come to the conclusion that the only way to deliver the change I want to see is to vote leave, end the supremacy of EU law and replace our membership of the EU with a new UK-EU partnership instead. I believe that if this country has the courage to act decisively and take control, then in five years' time the only question people will ask is why we didn't do it sooner."
