Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting ahead of the EU Referendum Bill debate today, said:

“Today the Commons will see the Conservative Party talking to itself and once again banging on about Europe.

“Last night there was a barbeque and this morning there’s a bill, both to try and silence rebellious Conservative backbenchers.

“Instead of trying to get his backbenchers back in line, the Prime Minister should be spending his time getting the country back on track.”
