A no deal Brexit would be catastrophic for Leicester and the UK, seeing businesses that rely on exporting to the EU hit by new tariffs and delays at the border, meaning costs would rise and jobs would be put at risk. On 7 January, I wrote to Theresa May, alongside more than 200 MPs, calling on the Government to ensure a no deal Brexit doesn’t happen. Read more about the letter here.

I also signed and voted for Yvette Cooper’s successful amendment, which will help stop a no deal Brexit by preventing the Government from using certain powers in the Finance Bill unless there is a specific vote in Parliament.

Liz interviewed by BBC News on the Government's Withdrawal Agreement

Watch my interview on BBC News: Whether Theresa May wins or loses the vote of confidence in her leadership tonight, it's not going to change the fundamental problems with the Government’s Withdrawal Agreement

I was interviewed by BBC News about the Government’s Withdrawal Agreement ahead of the vote of confidence in the Prime Minister on 12 December.

 

There is no backing in Parliament for the Government’s Withdrawal Agreement, which would see us give up our say on rules that govern our lives. This isn’t what people were promised during the referendum. If we want to protect jobs and have no border in Northern Ireland, we need to stay in the Single Market and Customs Union.

The Government’s Brexit agreement is not what people were promised, it’s a worse deal than we have now, and the uncertainty will go on for years to come.

You can watch my question to the Prime Minister about her agreement here.

You can also watch my interview on BBC news about why I’ll be voting against the Government’s Withdrawal Agreement here.

Liz interviewed on Withdrawal Agreement

Watch: The Government’s Withdrawal Agreement is not what the British people were promised and is bad for the country. I will be voting against it

Posted by Liz Kendall on Thursday, 15 November 2018

After two years of chaos and confusion the Government has final published its Withdrawal Agreement from the EU.

The agreement fails to deliver on the promises that were made during the Referendum. No one voted for less control, or to be poorer.

You can watch my me discussing the Withdrawal Agreement on Sky News here and listen to me on BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour here.
