Mark Tami MP is set to reject Theresa May’s deal and vote to rule out a ‘No-Deal Brexit’

MPs today went back to Westminster where the Brexit debate will continue.

Before Christmas, Theresa May shelved a meaningful vote for Parliament on her withdrawal agreement and scheduled the vote to take place on 14th January instead.

MPs will use this week to debate her deal and what other options remain on the table.

Local MP for Alyn and Deeside, Mark Tami, intends to vote down Theresa May’s deal and brands it a “complete failure”.

Mark Tami said; “I believe the Brexit deal the Prime Minister has agreed with the EU represents a complete failure of her approach.

“Theresa May has somehow achieved the unachievable by uniting the majority of the country in that people from both sides – remain and leave – both want her deal to be voted down.

“There would appear to be a consensus in Alyn and Deeside, as is the case amongst MPs in Westminster, that Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement is a bad deal that shouldn’t be supported.”

“I can assure my constituents that I will not be supporting her deal as I do not feel it will protect jobs, workplace rights or environmental standards. It will not ensure frictionless trade for UK businesses. The situation in Northern Ireland would be unsustainable and it will leave us with no say over future rules and no certainty for the future”

Over 200 MPs from various parties, including Mark Tami, have this week signed a letter urging the government to take the prospect of a no-deal Brexit off the table.

MPs are set to vote tomorrow (8/12) on an amendment to the Finance Bill, tabled by Yvette Cooper MP, that could force a government shutdown unless a no-deal Brexit is taken off the table.

Mark Tami intends to vote for the amendment as he is fearful of what a No Deal may mean for the area.

“The threat a no deal scenario poses to the manufacturing industry is critical. This area relies extensively on that industry in particular and if we plunge into a situation on March 29th where nothing is in place, then that could be devastating for my constituency and the country as a whole.

“Leaving the EU without a deal would cause unnecessary economic damage. Trading on World Trade Organisation terms would instantly make our manufacturers less competitive and make it very difficult for the industry to justify producing goods in the UK for export.

“As well as the threat to manufacturing, taking a no-deal could lead to medicine shortages and food tariffs. I therefore feel we should be doing our utmost to avoid putting the livelihoods and jobs of the British people at risk.”

Delyn MP David Hanson said in November  has will vote down Theresa May’s Brexit deal when Parliament votes on January 15.
