Theresa May has secured no changes to failing Brexit deal

Theresa May today admitted she has got no changes to her failing Brexit deal and it will not change before Parliament votes on it. Nothing has changed.

The Prime Minister says she wants Parliament to have a greater role, but having pulled the meaningful vote before Christmas, her words are not borne out by her actions.

Labour has repeatedly called for the Prime Minister to put her deal to a meaningful vote in Parliament and to listen to the concerns of the House.

Theresa May promised a “greater role for Parliament” on The Andrew Marr Show, but she has failed to take on board the concerns of Parliament and on The Andrew Marr Show she refused six times to rule out repeatedly bringing back her failed Brexit deal to Parliament if she loses the first vote.

Labour is demanding the Prime Minister explains and defends the lack of changes to her deal.

 

Jon Trickett, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, said:

“The Prime Minister today admitted that she has secured no changes to her disastrous Brexit deal. Essentially, nothing has changed.

“Her promise to go back to Brussels to renegotiate was a cynical attempt to further delay the vote on her botched deal.

“Theresa May needs to bring that vote back to Parliament immediately, to listen to the concerns of the House and explain why there are no changes to her deal.”
