Govt accused of ramping up efforts to avoid Brexit scrutiny

The government has been accused of ramping up efforts to avoid scrutiny over Brexit legislation, with Ministers having failed to produce a number of impact assessments and MPs being given only a few hours to assess hundreds of pages of major statutory instruments.

Commenting, Best for Britain supporter Martin Whitfield MP, said:

“Taking back control never looked so bleak and undemocratic.

“If they don’t want it questioned, you can bet it’s bad.

“This is the most important decision for this country in years and it’s disgraceful to see ministers trying to do it in the dark. This is House of Cards politics, not fit for anywhere but the telly.”
