Liz questions Prime Minister on the Withdrawal Agreement

Watch my question to the Prime Minister: Theresa May is trying to intimidate MPs into supporting her Withdrawal Agreement by delaying the vote and running down the clock. She isn’t acting in the national interest but in her personal interest

The Prime Minister is trying to intimidate MPs into supporting her Withdrawal Agreement by delaying the vote and running down the clock, meaning we’re at even greater risk of crashing out of Europe without a deal. Theresa May is not acting in the national interest but only in her personal interest.

 

I also questioned the Prime Minister about Brexit on 10 December. Any type of Brexit has always been a choice between damaging our economy and having a hard border in Northern Ireland, or ending up as a rule-taker. Theresa May’s failure to spell out this choice has caused the current crisis. Watch my question here.

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

Posted by Liz Kendall on Wednesday, 12 December 2018

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.

On 30th November, I marked Carers Rights Day. This is the annual event to raise awareness about the needs of the UK’s six and a half million unpaid carers.

I’ve been backing Carers UK’s calls for 10 days of paid leave for carers who are also holding down paid work.

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.
