How North East MPs voted on amendment to delay decision on Boris Johnson's Brexit deal
North East MPs have backed a motion to delay the meaningful vote on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.
The majority of North East MP’s voted in favour of the amendment.
The only Labour MP to defy the Party whip was Blyth Valley MP, Ronnie Campbell, who voted against the motion. Hexham Conservative MP also voted against it.
The amendment tabled by former Cabinet minister, Conservative MP Sir Oliver Letwin and was intended to force the Prime Minister to comply with the so-called Benn Act requiring him to seek a Brexit extension.
The amendment states the House of Commons has considered the Government's Brexit deal but "withholds approval" unless or until legislation implementing the agreement has been passed.
