UIN HL11861, tabled on 27 November 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they support a second referendum on Brexit.

After a period of sustained public debate, a clear majority of the electorate voted to leave the EU in June 2016 with the highest number of votes cast for anything in UK electoral history. We must respect both the will of the British people, and the democratic process which delivered this result. As such, it is a matter of Government policy that there will not be a second referendum on our exit from the EU.
