the prime minister lawmakers to grasp what she called a last chance there is an issue about customs there is a difference of opinion in this house on the future customs arrangement with the european union that's why it's important that this house actually comes to a decision on that issue this 2nd referendum the 2nd reading of the withdrawal agreement bill will enable this house to come to a decision on that issue it will also enable the house to come to a decision on a 2nd referendum which i continue to believe would not be the right route for this country to go down we should deliver on the 1st referendum suggesting anything about a 2nd let's go straight to. mass and welcome. as well as political turmoil there are now reports that members of cabinet are to meet with her to day one of them likely to be hoping to achieve. well
