Sharon Hodgson MP launches Brexit survey for constituents of Washington & Sunderland West

Sharon Hodgson, Member of Parliament for Washington & Sunderland West and Shadow Minister for Public Health, has today launched a survey for local constituents on Brexit.

This is the second consultation that Sharon has undertaken since the European Union (EU) Referendum of 2016. The questions focus on a number of key issues, including potential future scenarios, reasons for voting behaviour in the initial referendum, and overall opinions on the Brexit process.

Sharon Hodgson MP said:

‘Despite it being over two years since the referendum, the Government appears to remain bitterly divided when it comes to the nature of Brexit, and the uncertainty is already having a negative impact on people’s lives, and businesses in my constituency.

As many people will know, I campaigned and voted to remain in the EU. However, I recognise that a majority of people voted to leave, and ultimately I respect the result of the referendum. I therefore want to hear from as many people as possible in order to ensure that I am representing my constituents in the best way possible.

We are approaching a key moment in this process, and there will be some difficult choices to make about the future of our relationship with the EU. However people voted in the initial referendum, I know that they did not vote to be worse off than they were before.

The Government has a responsibility to deliver a deal that works for everyone, and if they are unable to do so, I want to hear what my constituents think should happen next.’
