BLACKFORD: NOW RULE OUT NO-DEAL AND HOLD SECOND EU REFERENDUM

ARTICLE 50 MUST BE EXTENDED LONG ENOUGH TO PUT DECISION TO PEOPLE

The SNP has said Parliament must now move swiftly to rule out a No-Deal Brexit, and extend Article 50 long enough to put the decision back to the people in a second EU referendum.

Following tonight's second overwhelming defeat for Theresa May's Brexit plan, Ian Blackford MP said the Prime Minister must starting acting in the interests of the four nations of the UK, and not just her own party - by whipping her MPs to rule out No-Deal and extend Article 50.

Commenting, Ian Blackford MP said:

"Theresa May's damaging Brexit deal has been overwhelmingly rejected for a second time.

"Parliament must now move swiftly to rule out a disastrous No-Deal Brexit, and extend Article 50 long enough to hold a second EU referendum - with Remain on the ballot paper.

"The Prime Minister must finally act in the interests of all four nations of the UK - and not just her own party - by whipping her MPs to vote against a No-Deal Brexit and extend Article 50.

"Giving her MPs a free vote is a disgraceful dereliction of duty, the Prime Minister is clearly in office, but not in power. Extension of Article 50 is the only way to prevent lasting harm to jobs, living standards and the economy.

"Scotland's wishes have been completely ignored throughout the Brexit process. We voted to remain in the EU and we must not be dragged out against our will.

"The case for independence is stronger than ever. If Westminster continues to prove incapable of respecting Scotland's wishes - Scotland will move to protect our own interests."
