MPs back vote to trigger EU exit

BATLEY & SPEN Labour MP Tracy Brabin has voted in favour of triggering Article 50 to withdraw from the European Union.

In a marathon Parliamentary debate on Wednesday, Ms Brabin called on MPs to “move the process on, not with angry denial or blind optimism but on a mission to be vigilant about the rights of those who have the least and those who support people in the greatest need.”

Both Ms Brabin and her predecessor Jo Cox were strong supporters of the Remain campaign.

But she vowed to “respect democracy” and said the priority should now be to “get the best deal for everyone”.

Dewsbury & Mirfield MP Paula Sherriff also voted in favour of Article 50.
