New cabinet committee on Brexit must not “come at the cost of public and parliamentary scrutiny of the process”

Commenting on the news that every pro-Leave cabinet minister has been included in the new cabinet committee on Brexit, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

"While it is encouraging that the vital issue of Brexit may receive greater discussion at Cabinet level, it is crucial that this does not come at the cost of public and parliamentary scrutiny of the process.

“The Government need to be much more open about the aims and principles of their negotiation, both with the people and the House of Commons. We should not be forced into a hard Brexit by a private cabal of ministers.”
