Brexit votes

Commenting on today’s votes on Brexit, Oliver said:

“I continue to believe that the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by the Government is a good basis for Brexit and has many good features. It is the most likely option to ultimately gain parliamentary approval. However, I agree that the Backstop causes concern and that there could be a clearer mechanism for ending it or a better guarantee of the open border in N Ireland. I have therefore supported the Government and the Brady amendment aimed to improve or replace the backstop.”
