Royal Assent is a simple yet significant step

Commenting on the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act receiving Royal Assent, Change Britain Chair Gisela Stuart said:

‘This is a simple yet significant step in implementing the referendum result and respecting the decision of the British people to leave the EU.

‘Brexit will allow us to begin the process of national renewal, enabling us to build a robust economy, more cohesive communities and to make politicians more accountable to the public.

‘In the weeks and months ahead, I would urge politicians from all parties to work together to help ensure we make the most of the opportunities that leaving the EU will provide.’
