I am so sorry to tell the hon. Lady, but she has obviously been reading something completely different from the rest of us because it most absolutely does not. The Bill has been carefully drafted, and properly so, to make sure that it is in the interests of our country that we take no deal off the table, because that is the best thing for this country.

The Bill is all about not stopping Brexit, as many of us would like to, but stopping no deal for all the reasons that have been explained.
