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.

I signed an important amendment to the Finance Bill to force the Government to publish the economic impact assessment of its Withdrawal Agreement from the EU alongside a comparison to the deal we currently have and a “no deal” Brexit.

I was delighted that on 19th November the Government caved in to our pressure and pledged to make this information available before MPs vote on the Withdrawal Agreement.

On 12 November, I was proud to support calls for a fairer asylum system at the Sanctuary in Parliament event organised by City of Sanctuary and Asylum Matters. It is essential that people who come to the UK after fleeing war, torture and persecution find safety and are treated with dignity and respect.

I was honoured to be able to host the Green Apple Awards in Parliament again this year. I’ve supported The Green Organisation over many years because of the hugely important work it does to highlight and support environmental best practice around the world.

This year, I presented the Champion of Champions award to company Eaton for its work installing Europe’s largest energy storage system using new and second-life electric vehicle batteries. The project provides a sustainable and more reliable energy source to the Johan Cruijff Arena in Holland and the local power grid.
