Jo Johnson MP, a leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
“There is something much bigger at stake here than the leadership of the Conservative Party and that is the future of our country.
“The Brexit deal that Prime Minister Theresa May has negotiated is clearly against our national interest. It's worse than our present deal within the EU, as leading Brexiters have admitted. It will leave us poorer than we otherwise would be and with less control over our laws.
“That is not what was promised in the referendum and it is clear that Parliament will never support this deal, which is why the Meaningful Vote on Tuesday was cancelled.
“We need to break the gridlock, get on with it and give the public the final say with a People's Vote.”
