Keir Starmer comments on the meaningful vote amendment result

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, commenting on the meaningful vote amendment, said:

“This vote was about ensuring Parliament was given a proper role in the Brexit negotiations and that we avoid a no deal situation, which is becoming more likely with the divisions at the heart of this Government.

“However, facing the prospect of a humiliating defeat Theresa May has been forced to enter negotiations with her backbenchers and offer a so-called concession.

“We will wait and see the details of this concession and will hold Ministers to account to ensure it lives up to the promises they have made to Parliament.”
