The Tories are trying to give themselves majorities in parliament that the voters wouldn’t give them at the General Election – Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy
Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party
,
commenting on the Tories plans take majority control over key Bill Committees,
said:

“The
Tories are trying to give themselves majorities in parliament that the voters
wouldn’t give them at the General Election. Theresa May lost her mandate and
her authority in June, now she wants to fix it by the back door. While Tory
ministers grab powers through the EU bill, they are sidelining scrutiny and
undermining democracy.”
