Support over Salisbury attacks bodes well for Brexit

James Cleverly questions the Prime Minister in the House of Commons, 26 March 2018

James Cleverly welcomes support that we’ve received from our friends and allies in Europe after the Salisbury attack which shows we still have significant influence and bodes well for the successful outcome to the Brexit negotiations. 

James Cleverly (Braintree) (Con)

Does my right hon. Friend agree that the response to the Salisbury attack from our friends and allies in the European Union not only shows that she still has a huge degree of standing among our European friends, but bodes well for a pragmatic and mutually beneficial conclusion to the Brexit negotiations?

The Prime Minister

I think that not only the way in which other EU members have supported the United Kingdom and taken action in relation to Russia, but the fact that we achieved the December joint report and agreed considerable amounts of the withdrawal agreement and implementation period does indeed bode well for our future negotiations.
