Tonight this House will hopefully have the chance to vote on my new clause 22 to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which would give Parliament the power at a future date to determine whether we leave the single market by coming out of the European Economic Area. It does not dictate how hon. Members should then vote, but it does ensure proper democratic oversight. Should not it be our sovereign Parliament and not the Prime Minister that decides our country’s economic future?
