Leader of the House: Pulling the Withdrawal Agreement debate

Last night I expressed my utter astonishment that the UK Government thought it right and proper to pull the debate on the Withdrawal Agreement.

I had told constituents that I was going to speak in the debate and I lost my chance because the UK Government knew they were going to be defeated.

The attitude of the Prime Minister and her Cabinet towards Parliament is deeply disrespectful and undermines faith in politics.
