Last night there was a vote in Parliament on leaving the European Union. I voted to give permission to the Prime Minister to trigger Article 50. The Prime Minister has said she will do this and start the formal process of leaving the EU – by the end of March. We will formally leave the EU in 2019.

I voted to trigger Article 50 because the national referendum decision was clear. Here in Hull it was even clearer - 62% of people in Hull North voted to leave. It's now time to get on with it.
