The importance of Lords amendments 19, 20, 37 & 39

Lords amendment 19 – providing for a meaningful vote – is a vital democratic safeguard. It is needed to stop us sliding into a hard Brexit that only a few want.

Without this amendment, the Prime Minister is at the mercy of the Brexit extremists. Voting for it is a vote for the moderate mainstream majority.

The Government’s alternative amendment does not do this. It means a vote against the deal is a vote for exit without a deal – and is therefore meaningless.

Also important are amendments 20, 37 and 39. These are all needed to ensure Parliament sets the Government’s negotiating mandate – and not the Brexit extremists.

So please ask your MP to vote for these amendments. It could be the last chance.
