Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson has demanded the Prime Minister "obey the law and send a letter asking for an extension to Article 50" following votes in the House of Commons today.

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson said:

"The fight to stop Brexit continues, and the Liberal Democrats will keep working for a People's Vote so that the people can have the final say.

"Hundreds of thousands of people are marching outside to demand a final say and a People's Vote. The Prime Minister must now obey the law and send a letter asking for an extension to Article 50.

"The Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain. We will use the extra time we now have to secure a People's Vote and campaign to remain in the European Union."
