Anne Main calls for MPs to be consulted if the EU demands further concessions on the Chequers proposals

9th July 2018

Anne Main calls on the Prime Minister to recall Parliament over the summer if the European Union makes any further demands from the UK on the Chequers proposals.

My right hon. Friend refers to negotiations. Of course, negotiations are about give and take, and some people may think we have given rather too much, but I am actually not sure that the European Union will take it—I think it will want us to give a little more, and a little more. Will she recall Parliament over the summer if, in those deep and pacey negotiations, we are asked to give even more? [Interruption.]

Although I recognise the good intentions with which my hon. Friend asked that question, I suspect that it did not quite receive the full approval of the entire House.
