‘Involve Leadership Of OTs In Exit Discussions’

July 14, 2016

Opposition MP Walton Brown moved a motion in the House of Assembly yesterday which calls on the United Kingdom government to “actively involve the leadership of the UK Overseas Territories in the exit discussions so that the interests of the Overseas Territories can be fully represented and advanced.”

The UK referendum on June 23rd saw the British vote — by 51.9% — to leave the European Union, with Britain set to be the first country to leave the EU since its formation.

The motion read: “Whereas the voters in the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union; and being mindful of the need for extensive exit negotiations; and where further, most United Kingdom Overseas Territories citizens were not participants in that decision while being affected by the outcome; be it resolved that this Honourable House calls on the United Kingdom government to actively involve the leadership of the UK Overseas Territories in the exit discussions so that the interests of the Overseas Territories can be fully represented and advanced.”
