Leslie – Davis must give a statement to Parliament on withdrawal deal confusion

Commenting on the European Parliament motion condemning David Davis for “undermining trust” in the Brexit deal, Chris Leslie MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Days after they claimed victory in Brussels, the Government's position has already collapsed into chaos and confusion.

“After 15 months in the job, David Davis still hasn't realised that you can watch BBC1 in Belgium, and that European politicians notice when he tries to backtrack on his commitments to them live on TV.

“Davis is putting the negotiations in jeopardy with his shoot from the hip attitude. To clarify the situation he must urgently make a statement to Parliament explaining what the status of the deal is and confirming his and the entire Government's commitment to it, before the European Council summit.”
