I do wish that the hon. Gentleman would not rewrite history. I have some lovely quotes here. The present Foreign Secretary said:

“I’d vote to stay in the single market. I’m in favour of the single market.”

Mr Paterson said:

“Only a madman would actually leave the market”.

That one speaks for itself. Arron Banks stated:

“Increasingly the Norway option looks the best for the UK.”

What the hon. Gentleman is saying is simply not the case.
