Cable: Lib Dems aim to give MPs a chance to back a people's vote


Speaking ahead of his speech to the Scottish Liberal Democrat spring conference in Hamilton on Saturday 23rd February, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable has announced he will this week seek cross-party support for an amendment in the House of Commons calling for a People's Vote.

Vince Cable said: 

“For months, I have been speaking with many of these now independent MPs. We have much in common. For the good of our country, we will cooperate on areas of shared values, not least stopping Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn’s chaotic and damaging Brexit.

“That is why I can announce Liberal Democrats will once again this week seek to secure cross-party support for an amendment in the House of Commons calling for a People's Vote, with the option to stay in the EU.

"We cannot let Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn conspire to run down the clock. Liberal Democrats have led the campaign for a People’s Vote. We have campaigned for it, we have marched for it and we will vote for it.”
