London First response to final Withdrawal Agreement vote
29 March 2019
Jasmine Whitbread, Chief Executive of business campaign group, London First, said:
“With the last rites now performed on what’s left of the Prime Minister’s deal, we must revoke Article 50 to avoid crashing out of the EU in a matter of weeks. This is the only unilateral way to take no deal off the table and would give time for Parliament to find a sensible way forward without an arbitrary deadline hanging over the country.
“After a thousand wasted days, MPs will consider a range of options again next week – it’s time to pick one. And if they can’t agree a plan that can command broad support, the only sensible option is for the decision to go back to the people.”
