This morning the Prime Minister, Theresa May made a speech on the government’s priorities for Brexit.
In a statement issued today, Cllr Stephen Morgan, Portsmouth Labour Leader, responds to the speech on what Brexit should mean for the city’s communities.
Cllr Morgan says:
“Portsmouth decided to vote leave and Labour stands by that decision. What is important to me is that we turn Brexit into an opportunity for our great city.
Whatever deal the government decides to pursue, we need to ensure that local businesses succeed.
We need to attract new investment and we need to create much-needed new well-paid jobs for local people.
I’m proud of what Portsmouth achieves. Labour will always back Pompey and its people. We know that together we can make a success of Brexit.”
