Government has admitted nothing has changed on meaningful vote – Corbyn

The Government has confirmed the Meaningful Vote is a continuation debate and that the House is being asked to vote on the exact same deal as the one stopped on 10 December 2018 because the Prime Minister said that “the deal would be rejected by a significant margin”.

Commenting, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said:

“The Government has admitted that nothing has changed. Theresa May has recklessly run down the clock and secured no legal or other changes to the withdrawal agreement.

“The delay to the meaningful vote has achieved nothing beyond wasting a month. If the Government’s deal is defeated then a general election is the best way forward to give a new government a mandate.”
