Harriett Baldwin calls on Government to hold vote on PM's new deal


7th October 2019

Harriett Baldwin calls on the Government to hold a vote on the Prime Minister’s proposed changes to the Withdrawal Agreement to show that there is a majority in Parliament in support of the new agreement which would strengthen our negotiating position in Europe.

I love the way that Opposition parties are implying that if only they could see these documents, they would rush to support the deal. I think the British public are now wise to the way in which Parliament has frustrated the Government’s negotiating position. Would it be possible for the Government to strengthen their negotiating hand by holding a vote on these proposals, in the way that we did on the Brady amendment in January, and show that there is a majority in this place for them?

I think members of the public are getting wise to what is going on: this Government are trying to deliver Brexit and this Parliament, collectively, is trying to frustrate it. She raises the interesting solution of putting this to a vote, and I will discuss that with my ministerial colleagues.
