Government defeated on Grieve amendment

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, commenting on the passing of Dominic Grieve’s amendment in the House of Commons, said “The Government’s decision to delay the meaningful vote has run down the clock and increased the risk of a no deal Brexit.

“If the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal is defeated next week, she must return to Parliament as soon as possible and give MPs a real say on what happens next.”
