Protecting Portsmouth from a no-deal Brexit
Soaring food prices according to The Bank of England. Medicine and staff shortages potentially leading to deaths. Turning our city into a congested lorry park. These are the consequences of a no-deal Brexit for Portsmouth people.

- Voted consistently to stop no-deal in Parliament
- Written to the Government Minister responsible asking for reimbursement for the £4 m Portsmouth City Council has payed in preparations

“Portsmouth people will suffer if we crash out with no-deal and I will not stand idly by and let the Government gamble with our city’s future. I committed to working cross-party and across Parliament to safeguard our city and our nation from a catastrophic no-deal.”
Stephen’s works goes on when it comes to campaigning against no-deal and backing a final say. Each day he has built partnerships, lobbies Government and worked with other MPs to stop this most harmful of threats.
