Keir Starmer response to Dominic Raab’s letter about the meaningful vote

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to Dominic Raab’s letter about the meaningful vote, said:

“Labour doesn’t accept that the choice facing Parliament will be between whatever deal Theresa May cobbles together or no deal.

“That is not a meaningful vote and Ministers can’t be allowed to silence Parliament.

“MPs must be given the opportunity to scrutinise, consider and, where appropriate, amend any resolution the Government puts forward.”
