The Government were defeated tonight in the Commons on a major piece of Brexit legislation.
Commenting, Caroline Lucas MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Brexit has sunk further into the Westminster quagmire tonight with the Government losing a key vote on medicines and scraping home on a vote on the Customs Union.
“Parliament is deeply divided on Brexit and the Government are struggling to get anything passed.
“The only way forward is put this issue to the public and have a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
