Responding to reports that the Government is due to postpone the House of Commons voting on their Brexit deal, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:
“Theresa May appears to have marched her depleted troops to the top of the hill only to lose her nerve. She is hopelessly weakened.
"There is little point postponing the vote when nothing concerning the deal will change. The Conservatives are wilfully prolonging Brexit uncertainty because they can’t get their deal through Parliament.
“This deadlock must be broken by giving the people the final say, including the opportunity to remain in the EU.”
