  6. Sheppard: Government has a 'Halloween fetish'

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Tommy Sheppard

    The SNP's Tommy Sheppard calls on Michael Gove to say "what is he not telling us".

    He wants to know why the minister "continues to commit hundreds of civil servants and waste hundreds of millions of taxpayers' money on an objective we have consistently ruled out".

    Mr Sheppard says the PM has acted with "all the enthusiasm of a petulant schoolboy" in asking the EU for an extension to Brexit - but he has done it.

    So he wonders whether all the planning is based on an expected refusal from the bloc.

    The SNP MP also pushes Mr Gove on why 31 October is so important.

    "How come this date... has become elevated to extent it has?

    "This government has a Halloween fetish. The only reason it matters... is to save face for this prime minister."

    He adds: "It is a rum day indeed when the government is more concerned with the vanity of the prime minister than making good legislation."

  7. Trickett: UK 'on edge of precipice'

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    John Trickett

    Labour's shadow cabinet office minister John Trickett says a no-deal Brexit would be a "disaster", and the government has put the UK "right on the edge of the precipice".

    He asks Mr Gove to keep Parliament abreast of the meetings of his no-deal planning committee - which the minister says will now be daily.

    But Mr Trickett also makes a dig at his opposite number.

    "The idea was [Mr Gove] tried to avoid such a outcome, rather than make a no-deal possible," he says.

    "But his statement today fills me with foreboding.

    "It appears [the government] really do think 31 October is a date this House will accept."

    He adds: "MPs have repeatedly shown there is no will in this House to turn for a no-deal. It will not happen."

    Mr Trickett concludes that the government is trying to "blackmail and bully" MPs into voting for the PM's deal with the threat of no-deal.

  8. Gove: 'Orderly exit put in doubt'

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Michael Gove

    Michael Gove says the government "is determined to do everything we can to leave with a deal".

    He says the deal negotiated by Boris Johnson "gives this House opportunity to honour the votes of 17.4m people" and allow the UK to leave "on time and in an orderly fashion".

    But Mr Gove claims voting for the Letwin amendment on Saturday "put an orderly exit in doubt".

    He says officials have told him plans for a no-deal Brexit must now "intensify".

    "No-one would be happier than me to turn off those preparations and stand down planning for a no-deal," adds Mr Gove.

    "But if we are to be certain... we have to vote for the prime minister's deal."
