Include commitment to membership of the single market in The Queen's speech

Include commitment to membership of the single market in The Queen's speech

Include a commitment to membership of the EU single market in The Queen's speech

Why is this important?

In light of the British electorate's response to The Government's request for a mandate to pursue what has been termed a 'hard Brexit' approach to leaving the EU I believe that the Government should now respect the will of the people for a 'softer Brexit'. In order to demonstrate that commitment I petition The Government to include a clause in The Queen's speech to guarantee to the British people that the UK will remain within the single market as part of the terms of withdrawal from the EU.
