1. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Gove, UK MP and Justice Secretary, Conservative leadership contender:
"Well Theresa (May) is a formidable candidate and a great Home Secretary but I'm delighted by support that I've received from colleagues and it reflects the optimistic message that I've been arguing for. I believed in Britain leaving the European Union and I've argued for it for years. Now that it has I think the country deserves to have a leader who believes in Britain outside the European Union but one who also has experience at the highest level of government and a vision of how this country can be freer and fairer as well."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Gove, UK MP and Justice Secretary, Conservative leadership contender:
"We always said that whether or not we voted to leave or remain in the European Union there would be bumps in the road but now that we've voted to leave and voted in such numbers, what we can do is take back control of a number of areas where we can ensure that our economy has a brighter future. We can take back control, for example, of trade negotiations and it was already the case within days of our voting to leave that countries like Australia and New Zealand were falling over themselves to offer us new trade deals."

"I'm the candidate in this leadership election who believes most in the potential of this change in our status to unleash positive change not just in our economy but in our society as well."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Gove, UK MP and Justice Secretary, Conservative leadership contender:
"No I think the law is clear, I think there needs to be a general election in 2020 and I think that people want us to get on with delivering the change they voted for; not just a change in our relationship with the European Union but also the economic and social change that will make that work. Now some of those changes mean making our economy stronger, not just new trade deals but investing in science and helping people to own their own home. We also need action to help people on average, and below average wages who've suffered in the past because they haven't been fully involved, or fully participant in the increased prosperity that has been generated over the last few years. So, increased social justice, and an investment in innovation, that can ensure that we can make a success of this new chapter that Britain's embarking on."
