Responding to Theresa May’s inability to confirm whether there would be a "Brexit dividend" this afternoon Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson, Tom Brake said:
"The Brexit dividend is yet another piece of ‘vote leave’ nonsense touted by only the least credible leave supporters around the cabinet table.
"Theresa May’s refusal to even utter the phrase reveals that it is not part of the governments plans or the reality of life outside the EU.
"As Theresa May makes her whistle stop tour around the country, never staying in one part of the country long enough to answer any of the public’s questions, the Liberal Democrats are calling on her to be honest about the true cost of Brexit and the detrimental impact it will have on our country.
"As we near the Brexit deadline, the case for giving the public a vote on the final deal becomes clearer."
