Jeremy Corbyn responds to May’s words at the European Council

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, responding to the Prime Minister’s words at the European Council Summit and to the Commons Business announcement, said:

“It is clear there will be no changes to the deal the Prime Minister brought back last month. Theresa May herself says she isn’t expecting a breakthrough.

“There must be no more dither and delay, or attempts to run down the clock in an attempt to deny parliament alternative options.

“People and businesses need certainty. The Prime Minister should put her deal before Parliament next week in our country’s interest.

“She has admitted her deal is likely to be defeated by a significant margin. There is no time to waste, and parliament must take back control.”
