Brexit vote over rights

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

LABOUR is to force a Com­mons vote this week to en­sure worker rights are pro­tected after Brexit.

Shadow Brexit Sec­re­tary Keir Starmer fears the Tories are plan­ning to wa­ter down rules on paid hol­i­days and equal rights.

He is to chal­lenge the With­drawal Bill, which will trans­fer all EU laws, in­clud­ing pro­tec­tion from the sack, into Bri­tish ones when we leave Europe in 2019.

Sir Keir said: “Tak­ing back con­trol did not mean hand­ing min­is­ters power to tear up worker rights.”
