Responding to the votes this afternoon on the amendments to stop the next Prime Minister being able to pro-rogue Parliament, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"The votes today were a milestone victory in blocking Boris from trampling on our democracy.
"These votes on the Lords’ amendments make it potentially illegal for a Boris Johnson administration to prorogue Parliament in the run up to October 31st.
"We are stopping a no-deal Brexit, and we can stop Brexit. The only real way out of this chaos is a People’s Vote, with the option to stay in the EU, and the Liberal Democrats will keep fighting as we have done today to make this a reality."
