Speaking after the Commons Indicative Votes, Caroline Flint said:
"Yesterday, I voted in line with my general election pledges to respect the vote and to support a deal.
“None of yesterday’s debate was about the Deal the EU has asked Parliament to make a decision on. Some motions were about the future trading relationships, but a few motions were efforts to stop Brexit or force a second referendum. I voted against both of those proposals.
“If the Deal is brought back to the Commons I am clear what I will be voting for: for the UK to leave; to settle our debts; to protect jobs and give businesses certainty; to give EU citizens and Brits abroad certainty about their rights; and to protect workers’ rights and safeguard environmental standards.
“I didn’t hear any objection to any of those aspects of the Deal. Therefore, I have no doubt that the right thing to do is to vote for it.
“In doing so, I will try to stop the UK leaving with a “No Deal, no rights, no certainty Brexit” which Labour believes is the worst outcome of all.”
