Here's the government response,arrived today:

Department for Exiting The European Union wrote:


Government responded:

On 23 June 2016 the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a referendum provided for by an Act of Parliament.

The Government is committed to implementing the democratic outcome of the referendum.

The Government was clear in the run up to the EU referendum that we would honour the choice made by the people of the UK on 23 June 2016. We will maintain that commitment: the UK will leave the EU.

This Government will make no attempt to remain in the EU by the backdoor, nor will we hold a second referendum on membership. We are preparing for a smooth and orderly exit from the EU and we will trigger the legal process which starts this by the end of March 2017.

We will seek an ambitious future relationship with the EU which works for all the people of the UK and which allows the UK to fulfil its aspirations for a truly global UK.
