Cross-party Government of National Unity — 10 Jul 2018 at 16:45

The majority of MPs voted against a cross-party government of national unity.

The motion rejected by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • believes that the Government’s negotiations to leave the EU have not progressed to the satisfaction of the people of the UK, with polls indicating that 69 per cent of the people now believe the exit process is going badly;
  • calls on the Government to engage in cross-party discussions with a view to establishing a government of national unity; and
  • further believes that the people of the UK should have the final say on the UK’s relationship with the EU through a people’s vote on the deal.
