Parliament's voice must be heard - Statement from David Drew MP
“I will vote to support the motion tonight to enable Parliament’s voice to be heard. The people of Stroud, and the UK, have the right to be properly represented at this critical moment.
“Parliament is sovereign, as was emphasised by the leave campaign including many of those now in Government. It is deeply worrying that the Government is now treating Parliament and the electorate with such contempt.
“This is a critical week for Parliament, and I will be working hard with colleagues to do everything we can to safeguard this country from a disastrous no-deal Brexit.
“This Government has led us down a divisive and dangerous path when we should be concentrating on the real issues: housing, the climate crisis, education and public services.
“There is so much to be done, which is why I will continue to seek to represent the people of Stroud constituency whenever the General Election comes as your Labour and Cooperative Party MP, working for a fairer society for everyone.”
