Grove-White – David Davis is still asking for a blank cheque on Brexit

Commenting on David Davis’ written statement to Parliament on Amendment 7 of the EU Withdrawal Bill, Francis Grove-White, deputy director of Open Britain, said: 

“Given his track record, it is little wonder MPs feel disinclined to trust warm words by David Davis. His current lukewarm offer to Parliament also means that, in the case of ‘no deal’, our elected MPs will not be given any say over the nature of the UK’s exit from the EU. 

“The only way we can guarantee a meaningful vote at the end of the Brexit process is by enshrining it in law. 

“That means voting for Amendment 7 tonight, to give MPs the chance to stand up for their constituents’ interests on Brexit.”
