Victoria Atkins MP has again voted for the Government’s proposed deal on Brexit this afternoon (Friday) - and has accused MPs who voted against the deal of ‘blocking Brexit’.

Spilsby’s MP Ms Atkins said: “I voted again for the deal today, and I have voted consistently to deliver an orderly Brexit.

“Those who voted against the deal today have blocked Brexit.”
