Jeremy Corbyn asks the PM to confirm that if the government cannot agree a comprehensive relationship by January 2021, then negotiations will change back to extending the transition period.
“The backstop locks Britain into a backstop from which it cannot leave without the agreement of the EU,” he says, and no “guarantee exists for workers’ rights”.
“The list of EU measures that continue to apply” runs to “68 pages of the agreement”, he says.
“It is utterly far-fetched for the prime minister to suggest that we have taken control of our laws, money and borders,” he states.
He calls the draft agreement a “substantial dilution” from May’s previous commitments.
“Uncertainty continues for business and all those who works in those businesses,” he states, “many companies may decide the lack of certainty simply means they will Brexit”.
“There is no ambition to achieve continuation of the European arrest warrant,” he adds. #BREXIT #BBC #NEWS
