Antoniazzi – Prime Minister fails to rule out legislating for a new public vote

Responding to Prime Minister Theresa May’s interview on The Andrew Marr show today, Tonia Antoniazzi MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

"The Prime Minister today failed repeatedly to rule out legislating for a new public vote if her Brexit deal does not secure a majority in the House of Commons. She was asked three times by Andrew Marr if she would respect the will of Parliament and three times she ducked the question. The truth is that she knows her Brexit deal does not meet the promises made in the 2016 referendum, she knows that it will leave our country poorer and with less control than we already have inside the EU. And, for all her bluster, Theresa May knows she could yet be forced to offer a People's Vote.  If MPs stay true to their word and vote down this Brexit deal, the only way forward will be to let the public have the final say on Brexit."
