Rosie Cooper MP Voted To Support Control Motion

Rosie Cooper MP supported the “Control Motion”

The House of Commons yesterday voted by 309 votes to 298 – a majority of 11 – to defeat the latest attempt by MPs to seize control of the parliamentary agenda as part of a ploy to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

The motion, debated during time allocated for a Labour Opposition Day debate, proposed handing control of the Order Paper to MPs on Tuesday 25th June and, if passed, would have given MPs the chance to introduce legislation aimed at preventing a no-deal Brexit at the end of October and/or stopping a future Prime Minister proroguing Parliament as a way of ensuring the delivery of a no-deal Brexit.

The motion was tabled by Jeremy Corbyn and formally backed by the other opposition parties in Parliament, the SNP, Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru, the Greens and the now diminished Change UK.

  1. The old saying ‘Never trust a Tory’ rings true. Thick as thieves.

  2. She should read what Gareth Snell her fellow Labour MP has to say https://labourlist.org/2019/06/gareth-snell-why-i-voted-against-labours-motion-this-week/

    • Yes, Mr Snell says “Pretty much every business in my constituency is now telling me to either vote for a deal or confirm that we are leaving with no deal – because what they need is certainty”. So do 17.4 million people who voted to leave three years ago.
