Private Member’s Bill for 2nd Brexit referendum

David Scannell

On 6 July 2016, a Private Member’s Bill was presented to Parliament by Mr Geraint Davies MP (Lab) (supported by David Lammy, Helen Hayes, Sir Alan Meale, Mark Durkan, Chris Davies, John Pugh, Louise Haigh and Ann Clwyd) “to require the holding of a referendum to endorse the United Kingdom and Gibraltar exit package proposed by HM Government for withdrawal from the EU, or to decide to remain a member, prior to the UK giving notice under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, and for connected purposes” (see Hansard here).

The 2nd reading of the Davies Bill is due to take place on 21 October 2016.
