Keighley MP Kris Hopkins today said he was ‘disappointed’ by the Brexit vote.
The Tory politician had backed the Remain campaign in the EU Referendum.
As the UK prepared to leave the European Union, Mr Hopkins said:“A majority of those who voted on Thursday have decided that the United Kingdom should give up its membership of the European Union, and this must be respected.
The EU Referendum count will fall silent for one minute tonight as a mark of respect for murdered MP Jo Cox.
Those counting the Brexit votes at Keighley Leisure Centre will halt at around 11.30pm to remember the Batley and Spen Labour MP, who was shot and stabbed last week.
Bradford Council is observing the silence in support of Kirklees, a neighbouring authority.
Relatives of Iain Laidlow Stock are being sought by the coroner.
Mr Laidlow Stock died of natural causes at his home in North Queen Street, Keighley, on Monday.
