Matthew Pennycook responding to comments about the meaningful vote

Matthew Pennycook MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Minister, responding Andrea Leadsom’s comments about the meaningful vote, said:

“Andrea Leadsom and other members of the Cabinet can’t ignore the fact that Parliament won the right to a truly meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal.

“The idea that Ministers can simply ignore the will of Parliament and impose a choice between a bad deal and no deal would make a mockery of the phrase ‘take back control’.”
