Frontbench likely to whip MPs to back amendment tabled by Yvette Cooper
Labour is to support a backbench amendment tabled by Yvette Cooper that could force a government shutdown unless a no-deal Brexit is taken off the table.
The Labour frontbench is likely to whip its MPs to back the cross-party amendment, significantly increasing its chances of success in the Commons.
The amendment has the backing of a number of Labour and Conservative select committee chairs, including Tories Nicky Morgan and Sarah Wollaston, Labour’s Hilary Benn and Frank Field, the pro-Brexit chair of the work and pensions select committee.
