Leave's Theresa Villiers Faces Tough Questions From Shelagh
3 November 2016, 15:49
In the wake of the huge High Court ruling on Brexit, can Theresa Villiers explains what the government will do next? That's all Shelagh wanted to find out.
"Businesses, individuals, all sorts of people, need some certainty," said Villiers. "They need to know that these negotiations [with the EU] aren't going to drag on for years into the future."
"But with respect," cut in Shelagh. "What Theresa May does once Article 50 is triggered, what she goes to Europe with, is what Parliament wants to discuss, isn't it?"
"It's absolutely discussing it," responded Villiers. "It has been, it will continue to do that - "
Shelagh: "No, no, no, no, I don't mean discussing it like me and my mates in a room. I mean discussing it because she's given them something to discuss...she's got to give detail of what's going to be in the package?"
The debate continued at that pace as Shelagh tried to get to the bottom of what exactly the government was going to do next - see it all above.
