Government plan to exclude Brexit deal from Constitutional Reform and Governance Act shows contempt for our democracy – Blomfield

Paul Blomfield MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Minister, responding to the Government’s plan to exclude its Brexit deal from the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act, said:

“This plan shows contempt for our democracy.

“The Government is trying to avoid proper scrutiny and run down the clock in order to force through its bad Brexit deal.

“Labour will oppose this change, which would deny Parliament full scrutiny.”
