The Labour MP announced that she would not vote against the government’s bill which was met with heckles from her own party
She said: “In that General Election I told Don Valley voters when Britain leaves the European Union I will work for a deal that works for Doncaster.
“That means easy trade, protecting workers’ rights and tough immigration controls with strong borders.
“I said I don’t support a second referendum, we need to bring people together whether they voted Leave or Remain and make a success of Brexit.
“I repeat those words today because I have no intention of breaking my word to the voters who have returned me to this House on six occasions.
“I hope Ministers will listen to the concerns raised about this Bill because the Government’s lack of openness, collaboration and foresight to produce a better Bill has not helped.
“I will work with others to improve this Bill but tonight I cannot vote to block this Bill and I shall be abstaining to allow the Bill to be further discussed and amended.”
It’s a bit outrageous to see people in the same party heckling one another.
