David Davis ‘uncertain’ when Brexit vote will be

26 Oct

The Brexit Secretary was forced to appear before the House of Commons on Thursday after sowing confusion with his previous suggestion MPs and peers might only vote on a final Brexit agreement after Britain has formally left the EU.

But, he added: “Clearly we cannot say for certain at this stage when this vote will be.”
