Local MP’s voting record on Brexit – UPDATED.

According to the “They work for you” website, Faversham and Kent MP, Mrs Helen Whately, who represents Hollingbourne, has consistently supported Mrs May’s Brexit plan in recent votes in the House of Commons. 

Mrs May’s plan for Brexit can be viewed at https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/draft_withdrawal_agreement_0.pdf

The plan includes a departure from the EU Customs Union at some point which will have severe implication for traffic in Kent which is why the M20 between Hollingbourne and Ashford is being turned into a lorry park for 2000 lorries awaiting Customs at Dover and Eurotunnel. Around one fifth of the UK’s trade in goods goes through Hollingbourne by road or rail and any problems could create local traffic issues. Any problems on the London bound side on the M20 which will be used for traffic in both directions could result in traffic being diverted on to the A20 with a knock on effect on local roads.

During Operation Stack in 2015 when there were problems in Calais and the M20 was used to store lorries, there were jams in Eyhorne Street (picture below).

Her voting record is reproduced below.
