Following the Government’s defeat in the ‘meaningful vote’ last week, Prime Minister Theresa May announced the Government’s next steps for the Brexit process.
MPs voted in favour of an amendment to the business motion for the ‘meaningful vote’ which called for the Prime Minister to make a statement three sitting days after any ‘meaningful vote’ was lost. As the vote was lost on Wednesday – and last Friday the House did not sit – today is three sitting days on from the defeat.In her statement, the Prime Minister is expected to lay out how the Government intends to proceed now that the Commons voted against the Withdrawal Agreement last week. The Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn is expected to respond on behalf of his party.
