Call to cre­ate Brexit cab­i­net

Yorkshire Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A LABOUR MP has called on min­is­ters to fol­low Win­ston Churchill’s lead and cre­ate a “Brexit cab­i­net”.

The for­mer Min­is­ter Frank Field, who de­scribed him­self as a “re­luc­tant Brex­i­teer”, drew upon Bri­tain’s Sec­ond World War ex­pe­ri­ences of dif­fer­ent par­ties join­ing forces as he ex­pressed dis­ap­point­ment with the Gov­ern­ment’s strat­egy for han­dling the Brexit process.

He also pro­posed amend­ing the EU (With­drawal) Bill to in­clude an exit date of March 30, 2019, an hour later than a Gov­ern­ment amend­ment of 11pm on March 29, 2019. Mr Field said this rep­re­sented “a lit­tle free­dom” by en­sur­ing the UK sets the time.
