Government defeated on Grieve amendment – Keir Starmer responds

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, commenting on the passing of Dominic Grieve’s amendment in the House of Commons, said:

“The Government’s decision to delay the meaningful vote has run down the clock and increased the risk of a no deal Brexit.

“If the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal is defeated next week, she must return to Parliament as soon as possible and give MPs a real say on what happens next.”
