According to incorrect reports that planning for a People’s Vote will take a year, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:
“This is completely wrong. One of the useful outcomes from the first round of the discussions with the Government was around the practicalities of a People’s Vote. These discussions brought to the surface the complete misunderstanding in government circles about the timeline to bring it about.
"As Lord Tyler demonstrated today, it would be perfectly possible to organise a People’s Vote to take place as early as May without trampling on constitutional and practical requirements.”
