#UK - 'UK can't stop Turkey joining EU' says Penny Mordaunt - BBC News

Published on 22 May 2016
Defence Minister and Vote Leave supporter Penny Mordaunt has denied the UK would have a veto on any Turkish accession to the EU.

Speaking to Andrew Marr, she said: "I think with the current situation - the migrant crisis and other issues going on in Europe - we would be unable to stop it." The pro-Leave minister says the EU referendum is British voters' only chance to prevent that eventuality, adding again: "I don't think that the UK will be able to stop Turkey joining."
