Paul Blomfield comments on the first round of UK-EU negotiations on the future relationship

Paul Blomfield MP, Shadow Brexit Minister, commenting after the first round of UK-EU negotiations on the future relationship, said:

“The Government’s approach risks jobs and livelihoods in the UK and it is shocking that it will not commit to the European Convention of Human Rights. The decision to leave the EU was not a vote to erode our fundamental rights.

“Ministers are also recklessly undermining the chances of an agreement on security co-operation.

“The Government cannot dodge scrutiny on this and must come to Parliament on Monday to answer questions from MPs.”
