Liberal Democrats continue fight for a Peoples Vote

January 26, 2019 11:00 AM

Peoples Vote MarchThe Liberal Democrats have tabled an amendment to the Government's Plan B calling on the Government to prepare for a people's vote with an option to remain in the EU. The amendment, supported by all Liberal Democrat MPs, also calls on the Conservative Government "to take all necessary steps to rule out a No-Deal scenario".

Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said "For over two years the Liberal Democrats have been leading the charge for a people's vote. We know people are increasingly concerned about the national embarrassment Brexit has become, which is why we have tabled an amendment that would give people the final say on Brexit. There is still time to act in the national interest. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership must stop dreaming up more and more creative excuses for refusing to support a people's vote, which their members and supporters want. No matter who delivers Brexit it will be bad for jobs, the NHS and reduce our standing in the world. That is why the Liberal Democrats are steadfastly committed to a people's vote, where people have the right to choose to remain in the EU."
