Will YOUR Conservative MP support Dominic Grieve?

We understand Conservative MPs may be ‘toeing the party line’, but we firmly believe that many are as concerned as we are about the powers the EU Withdrawal Bill gives the Government.

There are at least 140 Tory MPs who voted Remain. So far, 10 of them have signed Dominic Grieve’s amendment for Parliamentary approval of the final exit deal.

We are confident of Labour party support for this and the amendment already has an impressive 44 signatures from 5 parties. We only need another 5-10 Conservative MPs to back it and we’ve won – there would have to be an act of Parliament to approve the final deal before we can leave the EU.

This amendment truly allows us to keep our options open!

If your MP gets lots and lots of letters about this, they may be inclined to join Dominic Grieve.

So if you are in one of the constituencies below, please write to your MP today asking them if they will give their backing to Amendment 7. Follow it up for an answer and don’t accept a standard reply – ask them directly if they will sign it.

The signing deadline is next Thursday 9th Nov. If they won’t put their name to it by then, ask them will they VOTE for it if and when it is called for debate.

Even better, sign up to our campaign now so that together we can make an even bigger impact through our national lobbying network.

Let’s keep the pressure up!

Suggested letter – but please make it your own.

Dear

I am a constituent of yours – my address is xxxxxxxx – and I am writing about the European Union Withdrawal Bill.

I understand that Brexit requires a Bill along these lines, but I am very concerned by the powers this gives to the Government to decide on the exit terms without consulting Parliament. After all, one of the main reasons people voted to leave the EU was to return powers to Parliament.

The Prime Minister has said that the European Union should make an offer that Britain can accept. It seems to me that the amendment tabled by Dominic Grieve requiring a statute to authorise the exit agreement is precisely what is needed to make that more likely: negotiators on both sides will know that the deal has to be good enough for Parliament to accept it.

Crucially, it will also undermine those who are arguing we will be better off without a deal at all.

Please could you join your colleagues who have already signed the amendment and sign it yourself – signalling the widespread Conservative support, that I am sure exists, both for democracy and a constructive deal.

Yours sincerely,
