02 July 2018

Prime Minister, Theresa May, made a statement in the House of Commons on the European Council meeting that took place in June.

In the statement the Prime Minister said she had "warned EU leaders that [she did] not think this Parliament will approve the withdrawal agreement in the autumn unless we have clarity about our future ​relationship alongside it."

In response, Jeremy Corbyn stated that "when it comes to Brexit, this Government have mishandled the negotiations every step of the way. Another summit has gone and another opportunity has been missed."
