    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Robin Walker

    Brexit minister Robin Walker says the government is amending the bill, not because it supports the proposed legislation, but because it wants to "limit its most damaging effects".

    He says he continues to urge MPs to reject the bill.

    He argues that it is not needed because the government has already said it will seek an extension to prevent a no deal.

  10. Exit dates 'deny the flexibility we need, says Labour MP

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Shadow Brexit minister Paul Blomfield says Labour will also oppose those amendments which seek to set an exit date.

    House of Commons

    Peter Grant

    The SNP's Europe spokesman Peter Grant says his party will vote against anything that seeks to limit any extension to a matter of weeks.

    He says it is "nonsensical" to think that the prime minister's deal can be improved in a short period of time.

    He says the prime minister's deal can only be improved "if we get a longer extension".
