A statement from the BCA Chairman on the ministerial resignation of Phillip Lee.

“The Bracknell Conservative Association notes with regret Phillip Lee’s decision to resign as a Minister at this time and that he is unable to support the government on a crucial vote this week. He has done this as a point of personal principle.

He has taken this decision on his own and without consulting the local party beforehand. It should be noted that the Bracknell constituency voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum.”
