Stephen presses Minister on the question of a second referendum

This morning, Stephen raised the prospect of a second referendum with the Brexit Under Secretary of State.

Pointing out that next month marks three years since the referendum, he questioned the Minister on how long the result would remain binding. In a short response, James Cleverly confirmed that the result would remain binding until Brexit was delivered.

Speaking after the exchange, Stephen said: “The Minister's answer was very weak. It is clear from the Government's own analysis that Brexit will make the country poorer. I do not believe that anyone voted for that and it is only right that Mrs May's deal should be put back to the public in a people's vote.”
