Government must publish Brexit legal advice

Responding to the announcement that the Speaker of the House has granted a debate on the cross-party contempt motion over the Government's refusal to fully publish the Brexit legal advice, cosignatory Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson, Tom Brake said:

"Parliament is finally taking back control from this chaotic government.

"The Attorney General put on a good show, but the House did not want TV drama. MPs expect the publication of the full legal Brexit advice before the debates on the withdrawal deal begin.

"The government must not be allowed to use this chaotic situation to take focus away from the mess they are making of Brexit."
