Public must have the option to reject this botched Brexit

Hounslow Liberal Democrat spokesperson Helen Cross has warned the Tories' "botched Brexit" will leave people poorer and called for MPs to give the public the final say on the deal.

During the debate on Tuesday, the Liberal Democrat MPs will be arguing for people to be given a final say, including the option to remain in the EU.

Hounslow Liberal Democrat spokesperson Helen Cross said:

"The Liberal Democrats have led the campaign for a people's vote. We know there is no deal better than the deal we have as members of the EU.

"Theresa May's deal, on the other hand, is bad for the NHS, bad for British jobs and leaves the UK a rule taker not a rule maker. It is a deal nobody voted for and nobody wants.

"Across Hounslow we are seeing a concerning rise in crime due to cuts in policing, through Mayoral police station closures and national Tory cuts; leaving the EU will make policing even harder, without access to vital crime fighting services like the European Arrest Warrant and European Criminal Records Information System."

"Liberal Democrats demand better. The only escape from this Tory mess is to give the people the final say on the deal, including the option to remain in the EU."
