MPs to debate second EU referendum
05 September 2016
MPs will have the chance on 5 September 2016 to debate the popular online petition which over 4.1 million people signed, calling for a second EU referendum.
Following the Brexit vote on 23 June, 4,144,605 people have, to date, signed a petition on the parliamentary website calling for a second EU referendum.
No petition on the parliamentary website has received this many signatures before and it is well beyond the 100,000 signatures required for Parliament to consider it for a debate.
As Politics Home rightly says, the debate will have no power to alter the vote but if offers the chance for those seeking a referendum on the final Brexit deal, to air their views.
