Seema Malhotra MP was interviewed by Adam Boulton on Sky TV today.
“Today on Sky News I challenged Tory Brexiteer John Redwood MP over the Government’s fatally flawed Brexit Bill. The Bill would allow Ministers to change laws by the back door. This is not the way to do Brexit. We need a process of scrutiny if we are to deliver a Brexit that does not negatively affect jobs, families and the economy.
This Bill is not about whether we will leave the EU, it’s about how we leave the EU, what role Parliament has in the process and how we safeguard vital rights and protections. As currently drafted, the Bill would put huge and unaccountable power into the hands of government ministers, side-line Parliament on key decisions and put crucial rights and protections at risk. Far from bringing back control to Parliament, it would result in a power-grab for Tory Ministers.”
