The letter states: “We who are supporters of Vote Leave and members of the Conservative Party thank you for giving the British people a choice of their destiny on 23 June.

“We believe that whatever the British people decide you have both a mandate and a duty to continue leading the nation implementing our 2015 manifesto.”​

The latest YouGov poll has predicted that Remain will win the EU referendum with 52 per cent of the vote.
