The most significant trade deal in recent history was rushed through parliament in less than a day. It has never been more important for the Brexit deal and its impact to be examined.
Yet the government is denying MPs any chance to scrutinise Boris Johnson’s deal. This is a threat to democratic accountability.
Brexit will affect the everyday lives of people and businesses across the UK. As a representative of the people, Parliament should have the right to scrutinise this deal.
Sign this petition and tell Jacob Rees-Mogg to reverse this decision and to keep the committee that will scrutinise Brexit.
Boris Johnson’s Brexit bears no resemblance to what was promised. It is a Bad Deal for Britain that is unwelcome when we are already worried about our jobs and businesses because of the coronavirus recession.
It is clear that the government will get its deal through the Commons - there is no doubt about that - but it should not be given a ringing endorsement. MPs will be voting on this deal in just a few days. Ask Opposition MPs not to endorse this Bad Deal for Britain. Ask your whipped Conservative MP what they will do to ensure local livelihoods are protected.
We will hold the Government to account for the harm this deal will do to Britain. It was a political choice, and opposition MPs should make this government take full responsibility.

This was not an accident, but a choice made by this government. They have chosen to implement the first trade deal in modern history that creates more barriers to trade. It is people like you and me that will suffer.
Here are just some of the implications of this deal for communities across the UK...
