Prime Minister Statement: Council of Europe Meeting: EUROPOL

The Prime Minister returned to the Commons today to update Parliament on her meeting with the other heads of Government of all EU nations last week.

This gave me another chance to ask the PM if she could guarantee that we will remain a member of EUROPOL when we leave the EU. As you would have heard from me before, we must remain a part of EUROPOL so that we can share intelligence and bring people to justice when run away from the UK.

The PM couldn’t guarantee this saying only that she hoped we would have a security partnership: meaningless words that do nothing to secure our streets. For a former Home Secretary I find the PMs actions in negotiating our security deeply concerning.
