Lammy - Jeremy Hunt effectively admits no deal is a false threat

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said that MPs have the ability to block a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Commenting, David Lammy MP, a leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:

“Jeremy Hunt has confirmed publicly what more and more of his colleagues are saying in private - that if MPs can’t agree on Theresa May’s deal next week, the only way forward is to give the public the final say on Brexit through a People’s Vote.

“The idea that if MPs vote down the deal, we head to no deal has always been a false threat and the Foreign Secretary has now effectively admitted it.

“There is no Brexit deal that fulfils all the promises made in the last referendum - or one as good as the deal we’ve already got inside the EU. Instead of embarking on another fruitless effort of renegotiation, it is time to hand this crucial decision back to the people.”
