Jeremy Corbyn Point of Order after third defeat of Theresa May’s Brexit deal

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking in the House of Commons after the third defeat of Theresa May’s Brexit deal, said:

“On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

“This is now the third time that the Prime Minister’s deal has been rejected.

“When it was defeated the first time the Prime Minister, said:

‘It is clear that this House does not support the deal.’

“Does she now finally accept that the House does not support the deal? Because she seemed to indicate just now that she’s going to return to this issue again.

“On Monday this House has the chance, and I say to all members, the responsibility to find a majority for a better deal for all the people of this country.

“The House has been clear, this deal now has to change. There has to be an alternative found. And if the Prime Minister can’t accept that then she must go, not at an indeterminate date in the future but now.

“So that we can decide the future of this country through a General Election.”
