Leslie – Government must amend Withdrawal Bill to guarantee meaningful vote for MPs on Brexit

Commenting on David Davis’ response to Labour’s Urgent Question on a meaningful parliamentary vote on the final Brexit deal, Chris Leslie MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Blithe reassurances from David Davis simply aren’t good enough – especially when the Government’s position on this vital issue seems to change by the hour. 

“To reassure MPs and voters that we will not be railroaded into a hard and destructive Brexit without Parliament having a say, the Government must amend the Withdrawal Bill to guarantee in legislation that MPs will have a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal before we leave. 

“If they do not, they may well find that parliamentarians from across the parties will force their hand when the Bill returns for committee stage.”
