UK: Gove reaffirms government pledge to deliver Brexit at Tory conference

United Kingdom, Manchester
September 29, 2019 at 20:32 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove reaffirmed the UK government's pledge to deliver Brexit during his speech at the Conservative party conference in Manchester on Sunday.

"17.4 million people voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, more than have ever voted for any party or policy in our country's history. But three years on, that democratic verdict has not been honoured. We cannot allow this division and delay to continue. We must get Brexit done," Gove said at the conference.

He went on to express his support for securing a deal with the European Union ahead of the October 31 deadline but stated that if an exit agreement is not secured "leave we must."

The Conservative party conference is scheduled to run on until October 2, with Brexit expected to dominate the agenda.
