Carmichael – PM’s white paper commitment is welcome, but it must be substantive

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s commitment to publish a white paper on the Government’s Brexit plan, Neil Carmichael MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“I wholeheartedly welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to publishing a White Paper. She has rightly listened to calls from MPs on all sides to give us the opportunity to properly debate and scrutinise the Government’s plans for Brexit.

“The White Paper that is published must now be sufficiently detailed, and be published in time for Parliament to be able to have a meaningful debate before Article 50 is triggered. MPs from across the House will be deeply disappointed if we are not given the time and information needed to scrutinise the Government’s Brexit plans on behalf of our constituents.”
