Liz’s speech in the debate on the EU Withdrawal Agreement

On 15th January I voted against Theresa May’s Brexit Withdrawal Agreement. The agreement isn’t what people were promised in the Referendum, it is a worse deal than we have now, and would mean the uncertainty we face about our future relationship with the EU will go on for years to come. 

The Government’s proposals will make our country weaker and poorer, and this is not something that I can support. I believe the best way of breaking the logjam about where we go next is to put the question back to the public, because what is on offer now is so different from what was promised in 2016.
