Parliament has taken back control as May suffers humiliating Brexit defeat

by Steve Beasant on 13 December, 2017

Responding to the Government’s defeat on Amendment 7 of the Withdrawal Bill today to give Parliament a meaningful vote on the final deal, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:

Palace of Westminster.

“Tonight, Parliament took back control.

“MPs insisted on a meaningful vote and dismissed Ministers’ eleventh hour attempts to buy off the rebels.

“This is a momentous day for Parliament and a humiliating defeat for Theresa May.

“Now that MPs are to have a meaningful vote on the deal, the British people should get one too.

“The Liberal Democrats will keep fighting to give people the final say with the choice to exit from Brexit.”
