Keir Starmer urges MPs to back ‘safety valve’ to stop no-deal Brexit

The shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, has urged MPs to back cross-party efforts to give parliament time to block no deal, calling it a “safety valve” so MPs can begin legislation to stop a new prime minister suspending parliament.

Speaking before a crunch vote on a motion that would give MPs control of the parliamentary agenda on 25 June, Starmer said MPs had to seize the opportunity to grant themselves time to stop a no-deal Brexit.
