Brexit set to be discussed when MP Matt Western meets prime minister today (08.01.19)

BREXIT will be the topic of conversation when MP Matt Western meets the prime minister today.

The Warwick and Leamington MP is set to meet Theresa May with a group of MPs from other parties to discuss how a no deal Brexit can be prevented.

It follows a letter signed by more than 220 MPs calling for a no deal option to be ruled out due to the cost it would have on the UK’s manufacturing industry.

Mr Western says there is much ‘anger and frustration’ among MPs as government has not ruled out a ‘no deal’ if the prime minister’s Brexit deal is voted down on January 15.

He said: “We are scheduled to leave the EU on March 29. This is fast approaching and the whole process unfortunately remains in disarray.

“Government is ramping up preparations for a reckless ‘no deal’ outcome if the prime minister’s deal does not pass through parliament. This would mean chaos for our local manufacturers such as Jaguar Land Rover, as parts get delayed at our ports.

“Far from ‘no deal being better than a bad deal’, the vast majority of MPs are urging the prime minister to accept that ‘no deal’ cannot be an option.”
