Commenting on decision of Sam Gyimah to resign from the Government, Justine Greening MP, former Secretary of State for Education and leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Sam Gyimah has been a highly respected and capable minister. This has obviously been a very difficult decision which he has considered carefully.
“Like many MPs he has recognised the huge shortcomings of the Prime Minister’s deal and the need to find an alternative path forward for Britain.
“His comments on the second referendum simply reflect the real choice confronting many MPs. He recognises trusting the people may be, in the end, the only way to break the gridlock in Parliament.”
