Dear Member of Parliament,
During the referendum last year, you campaigned for Britain to leave the European Union. As such, you were part of the Vote Leave campaign that promised to spend £350 million extra per week on our National Health Service once Britain left the European Union.
Now we are set to leave the EU, this promise cannot be swept under the carpet. The campaign of which you were a part even painted this pledge on a bright red bus which they toured around the country.
An amendment has been put down to the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill currently going through Parliament which will force the Government to tell us what the impact of Brexit will be on health spending. It reads:
“Before exercising the power under subsection 1, the Prime Minister must prepare and publish a report on the effect of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU on national finances, including the impact on health spending.”
As someone who campaigned to leave, will you vote wholeheartedly for this amendment? Your campaign promised £350 million extra per week for the NHS; you should not be opposed to the Government setting out how this will be delivered.
