A Brexit vote for MPs and new referendum?

People voted for Brexit, but not to leave the Single Market, said a former Liberal Democrat leader.

Nick Clegg wants MPs to vote on the Brexit deal, which should be subject to a referendum, but he accepts the decision to leave the EU.

Conservative MP Oliver Dowden, who also voted Remain, said Parliament should debate and scrutinise the deal, but there was no need for a vote to trigger Article 50, which starts a formal two-year timetable for the UK leaving the EU.
