Keir Starmer responds to the publication of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the publication of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, said:

“This is a Bill to implement Boris Johnson’s deeply flawed plan for Brexit.

“It is outrageous to deny Parliament the chance to scrutinise this incredibly important legislation properly. Ministers are trying to bounce MPs into signing off a Bill that could cause huge damage to our country. We can’t trust this Prime Minister.

“The truth is Boris Johnson knows that the more time people have to read the small print of his deal, the more it will be exposed for the risks it represents to our economy and communities across the country.”
