Liz campaigns to prevent no deal Brexit

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.
