The Single Market is the best deal for Britain

Tonight I moved an amendment to the Queen's Speech that would have mandated government to keep Single Market and Customs Union membership on the table.There is more than one way to leave the European Union, and there is a clear social justice and anti-austerity case to stay a 'member' of the Single Market. The Single Market 'access' the PM proposes isn't sufficient.Young people voted overwhelmingly to Remain and feel they have been robbed of future opportunities, part of the reason so many backed Labour on June 8th. We must not betray them in these negotiations.
