Responding to the Prime Minister’s statement in the House of Commons today, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"It is a positive step that the Prime Minister has ensured MPs will have the chance to put off No-Deal Brexit.
"However, rather than ending the uncertainty, the PM has instead created a potential double cliff edge that businesses will need to plan for.
"The consensus in the House of Commons is becoming increasingly clear; her deal will not get through, No-Deal will not get through. As Liberal Democrats have been saying for months, the only way to end the impasse is to give the public the final say through a people’s vote and an option to stay in the EU."
