Question in Urgent Question on Article 50 extension

John Howell (Henley) (Con)

I say to the House gently that I am less and less interested in hypothetical solutions to this problem. I voted for the deal and will do so again. The issue of no deal is not about trading on WTO terms; it is about ending the enormous uncertainty that will continue for companies if we go out in a no-deal scenario.

My hon. Friend puts it extremely well. These hypothetical discussions do not alleviate the uncertainty or address the problem. There is uncertainty, and the sooner we end it by backing a deal, the better it will be for this country.
