Stephen pushes Minister for a public vote

During an Urgent Question today in the Chamber of the House of Commons, Stephen asked DExEU Minister Robin Walker whether the Government would commit to a public vote in the event that the Prime Minister's deal is passed by Parliament. The Ministerial response confirmed that a public vote is "not something this Government would ever support".

Speaking after the exchange, Stephen said: "This is a very disappointing response from the Minister. As we are now faced with the Prime Minister's deeply flawed deal and the prospect of a disastrous No Deal, I am backing a public vote to prevent a damaging form of Brexit being forced on our country".
