COTSWOLD MP says he is supporting the government as opposition continues with their attempt to block no deal in parliament.

On Tuesday night the Commons voted 328 to 301 to take control of the Commons agenda, allowing them to bring a bill requesting a Brexit delay.

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown voted against that bill and has said he will vote against the legislation forced Prime Minister Boris Johnson to ask the European Union for an extension to the Brexit deadline on September 27.

The PM has previously said he wants the UK to leave the EU on October 31 ‘come what may’. There is also feverish speculation he may call a general election.

Cotswold MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown said: "I will be supporting the Government and will not be voting for a Bill that will force the Prime Minister to accept any terms dictated by Brussels.

"Politicians cannot pick and choose the public votes they want to respect, people want certainty and not endless delays in the attempt to permanently cancel Brexit.

"This Bill would also weaken ongoing negotiations to secure a better deal that could be approved by parliament.

"I believe the people of this country and businesses require politicians to honour the referendum, resolve Brexit and provide certainty for the future."
