Conservative MP and European Research Group (ERG) member Matthew Offord has said it would be “good for the United Kingdom” to continue to operate within the EU’s REACH chemicals regime after Brexit.
Speaking at an event in parliament on the post-Brexit regulation of chemicals, organised by NGO CHEM Trust, Offord said that “I’ve been described as a hard Brexiteer. I’m nothing of the sort. I’m a green Brexiteer”. He added that he recognised the importance of the EU to green policies, which have “served us very well”.
