In the referendum on the 23rd June 2016 Gosport and the British public voted to leave the European Union. Although Caroline voted to Remain, she respected the result of her constituents who voted Leave by 64%.

Caroline was re-elected in the June 2017 on a pledge to uphold the outcome of the referendum with 62% of the vote. Moreover, 93% of the votes in the Gosport constituency went to parties promising to implement Brexit.

Caroline also voted to repeal the European Communities Act 1972 through the European Withdrawal Act 2018 which put Brexit on a legal footing.

To protect the local economy and jobs, she has supported the Withdrawal Agreement that would allow the UK to leave in an orderly fashion. 

Caroline opposed efforts by Parliament to block Brexit and voted against an extension to Article 50, a second referendum and to take No Deal off the table. However, MPs voted for an extension which has delayed Brexit until October. 

Throughout, Caroline has written numerous statements explaining her votes which you can find below.
