Lammy - Big step forward that Labour acknowledging People’s Vote may be only way forward

Responding to Labour's amendment published this eveningDavid Lammy MP, leading supporter of People's Vote, said:

“It is a big step forward that for the first time my party is acknowledging in a parliamentary amendment that a People’s Vote may be the only way forward. 

"At the same time, the leadership is saying that Labour’s own Brexit plan should now take “centre stage” as this crisis unfolds. It is right that any proposal for Brexit deserves to be properly scrutinised. It is only when MPs have had the chance to look properly at these proposals, along with Norway Plus and a catastrophic “no deal” departure from the EU that they will really be able to decide whether they meet the promises made for Brexit in 2016 and are at least as good as the deal we already have inside Europe. 

"If there is any doubt over whether the preferred deal delivers, Parliament should hand the final say on this crucial issue back to the British people. I hope this approach can signal the beginning of the end of years of argument and division over Brexit in this country."
