Lib Dems to vote on revoking Article 50

September 11, 2019 12:28 AM

At the Lib Dem annual conference in Bournemouth a proposal to revoke Article 50 to allow the UK to remain in the European Union will be voted on by party members.

Party Leader Jo Swinson MP said: "The Liberal Democrats are fully behind a People's Vote with the option to remain, and we would campaign to stay in.

"We believe this is the best way to resolve the Brexit mess, and it is in the country's best interest. However, a general election may well happen before a People's Vote.

"Whenever the election comes, our position is clear and unequivocal. A Liberal Democrat government would not renegotiate Brexit; we would cancel it by revoking Article 50 and remaining in the European Union.

The Liberal Democrats are the strongest party for Remainers and those who support a People's Vote. The Party is committed to stopping Brexit.
