This is a Government in which the country can have no confidence as the Chancellor confirmed we are on the edge of a catastrophe – Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, commenting on Philip Hammond’s interview on Sky News Ridge on Sunday, said:

“Philip Hammond’s interview was extraordinary. The Chancellor signaled that the deal they’ve worked on for nearly three years is dead and junked the idea of no deal which Theresa May has held onto from the beginning.

“This is a Government in which the country can have no confidence as the Chancellor confirmed we are on the edge of a catastrophe.

“We have to find a way through this quickly and that is why Labour has put down an amendment next week to put Parliament in control of the Brexit process.”
