Clegg: MPs must be able to reject Brexit deal and send Govt back to negotiating table

Commenting on the Government's announcement MPs will be given a vote on the Brexit deal before it is put to the European Parliament, Liberal Democrat European Union Spokesperson Nick Clegg said:

“This concession from the government could still put MPs in an invidious position, faced with a choice between a bad deal and no deal at all.

"It is not good enough for the government to offer Parliament a hard Brexit or an even harder Brexit.
“For any final vote amongst MPs to be meaningful, Parliament must be granted the power to send the government back to the negotiating table if the deal they put forward is not good enough.
“Furthermore, this shouldn’t just be a decision for Westminster. The British people must be given a final say, with the option to reject the deal and stay in the EU."
