Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Karen Buck: It took time to get there, but the Prime Minister has now recognised that a no-deal Brexit is not a viable option. However, she knows as well as the rest of us that many of her potential successors do not feel the same way. So can she tell us whether she agrees with her Brexit Secretary, among others, who thinks that we should be spending the coming months stepping up the preparations for a...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Karen Buck: ...they did not know what they voted for. People did know what they voted for, but none the less a range of destinations was expressed in the leave vote.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Karen Buck: .... The second relies on unproven technology. In any event, neither will be ready by the time they are needed, and both have been written off in Europe.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Karen Buck: ...was a “technical” issue. But people do not live technical lives. They live in relationships, in jobs and in their children’s schools.
