Ashley Fox, leader of Conservative MEPs in the European Parliament, welcomes today’s start to Brexit negotiations.
He said: “Today the UK Government begins negotiating our departure from the European Union.
“The election result was clearly not the one we were hoping for, but the Conservatives remain the largest party in Parliament and the only one that can lead the country through the talks ahead.
"Theresa May has a clear plan to secure a comprehensive new relationship with the European Union that delivers prosperity and security for us all.
"One year on from the referendum, it is time to get to work and deliver for Britain."
