So much for bringing back powers to Westminster. The government this week confirmed it will shut down a parliamentary committee that would have scrutinised the impact of Brexit.
The Brexit committee has never been more important. Parliament must have a role in examining the Brexit deal and its impact, to call on ministers to explain its implications, and to challenge the government on its future plans for our relationship with the EU. That is why we are launching a petition calling on Jacob Rees-Mogg to reinstate the committee – click here to sign.
From the attempt to use the Royal Prerogative to trigger Article 50 to the prorogation of parliament and threats to break international law – over the last five years ministers have continually affronted our democracy, avoided parliamentary scrutiny and shown an outrageous disregard for the rule of law.
