“Withdrawal Bill delay shows Parliament is taking back control”

Commenting on reports that the EU Withdrawal Bill will not return to the House of Commons next week, and may be delayed until after the November recess, Chuka Umunna MP, Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on EU Relations, said:

“I am not at all surprised at this delay on the EU Withdrawal Bill – it is a badly drafted Bill, and badly thought through.

“The number of amendments has given Ministers a lot to think about, which shows Parliament is taking back control and is already doing its job of scrutiny well on this.”
