Newby: Lords vote "puts Parliament in the driving seat"

May 1, 2018 4:40 PM

Lib Dem EU flagCommenting on the Tory government's defeat in the House of Lords on giving parliament a meaningful vote on the Brexit Deal, Liberal Democrat leader in the House of Lords Dick Newby said:

"This is a hugely important result. It puts Parliament in the driving seat and ensures that the government will follow the directive of the House of Commons, no matter what the result of the negotiations with the EU.

"Brexit is the most important decision facing the country for a generation and it is vital that Parliament - not the government - decides whether or not any Brexit deal is acceptable."
