Commenting on the first report of the Brexit Select Committee, Joe Carberry, Co-Executive Director of the Open Britain campaign, said:
“Hilary Benn’s skilful leadership of the Brexit Select Committee has led to a vital report which unifies Leave and Remain politicians around demands for greater transparency from the Government.
“Parliament should not be side-lined during the Brexit negotiations. That means before they start, the Government should bring a White Paper before Parliament with their substantive plans and, at the end of the process, it is imperative that MPs are given a vote on the final deal.
“The Committee’s call for UK businesses to be able to continue to trade with Europe free of tariffs and bureaucratic impediments is critical and is best achieved by continuing full participation by the UK in the Single Market.”
