A Labour MP has presented a Bill to the Commons demanding a second Brexit referendum.

The backbench Bill calls for voters to get the final say on a Brexit deal, and Labour MP Geraint Davies says he has cross-party support for his bid to secure a referendum on any EU exit package.

Voters would be given the chance to remain in the EU if they did not agree with the Brexit deal under the move.

Mr Davies said: “My Bill aims to make sure that people get what they voted for.

“The negotiated exit package should reasonably represent what the British public voted for in 2016. However this is threatened by the Government’s repeated failure to make any progress in exit negotiations, which puts our national future at risk of a bad deal.

“Therefore the British people have the right to a final say on the exit package, or to stay in the EU if a deal fails to meet what people want and reasonably expect.

“My Bill is presented the day before the second reading of Theresa May’s Great Repeal Bill.

“There is growing momentum from across the political spectrum to challenge May’s vision of a hard Brexit, and the cross-party support for my Bill illustrates that.

“The British people deserve a final say on the Government’s disastrous exit negotiations, and we will continue to fight for that in Parliament.”
