Call to create Brexit cabinet
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.
