Commenting ahead of the Opposition Day debate in Parliament and the Government’s amendment committing to parliamentary scrutiny, Pat McFadden MP, of the Open Britain campaign, said:
“It is welcome that the Government has conceded that there should be proper parliamentary scrutiny of their negotiating position before they trigger Article 50.
“Hopefully this will put to an end the absurd accusation that anyone who asks the Government questions is trying to deny the result of the referendum.
“This is a significant starting point. MPs from across the House should now push for a vote on the Government’s negotiation terms, which the Government amendment to the motion does not compel them to hold.”
