Trade Bill marks doomed voyage into the great unknown
Speaking ahead of the Trade Bill returning to the House of Lords, Liberal Democrat Leader in the House of Lords Dick Newby said:
“Brexit means the UK abandoning not only the world’s largest trading bloc but also every free trade deal that the EU has ever negotiated with other countries.
“No one voted for this. No one voted for a rise in uncertainty and a fall in economic growth. But that is what the Tories, with Labour falling in behind, are delivering.
“Liberal Democrats remain firmly opposed to this discredited Bill, not least because it doesn’t stop the Government from implementing future trade deals by the back door. It marks the start of the UK’s doomed voyage into the great unknown.
“That is why Liberal Democrats continue fighting for the public to have the final say on the Brexit deal, with the option to remain in the EU.”
