PM statement on EU Withdrawal Bill: 12 Sept 2017

The Prime Minister gave a statement following the vote in the House of Commons on the EU Withdrawal Bill.


Prime Minister Theresa May said:

Earlier this morning Parliament took a historic decision to back the will of the British people and vote for a bill which gives certainty and clarity ahead of our withdrawal from the European Union.

Although there is more to do, this decision means we can move on with negotiations with solid foundations and we continue to encourage MPs from all parts of the UK to work together in support of this vital piece of legislation.
