Today at Prime Minister’s Questions I asked the Secretary of State to confirm that the Government will obey the law and request an extension of Article 50 – so that people in Sunderland avoid the double-whammy of No Deal Brexit on top of years of Tory austerity.
The Government’s own analysis of a No Deal Brexit states that medicine supplies will be affected, food supplies diminished, jobs lost and trade slowed – affecting the whole manufacturing industry. Yet the Prime Minister still remains determined to press ahead with leaving by the end of October.
People voted Leave or Remain for many different reasons, but no-one voted for a No Deal Brexit that damaged our industries, increased unemployment and stopped the most sick and vulnerable people in our society from getting the medication they need to stay alive.
