People must be given the final say on Johnson's Brexit

October 22, 2019 10:22 AM

Tom BrakeThe Liberal Democrats have demanded that the public must have the final say on Brexit, following the release of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

Responding to the release the bill, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said: "The Tory Brexit plan would hurt jobs, the environment and vital public services including the NHS. The Conservative government is trying to crash this Bill through Parliament before anyone realises just how bad it is.'

"MPs have had a chance to vote on Brexit again and again, yet as the Conservative government bring another Withdrawal Agreement to Parliament they still refuse to let the people have the final say. If Parliamentarians can change their minds then the people should be able to too.'

"Liberal Democrats will continue to fight to stop Brexit. Our priority is to secure a People's Vote with the option to stay in the EU."
