Suspend Westminster Parliament

The current political climate is creating a great deal of uncertainty with the possibility of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit.
 
Frances O’Grady, the General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), has responded on behalf of all unions including the Undeb Cenedlaethol Athrawon Cymru (UCAC) to the latest threat to suspend the Westminster parliament:
 
“This is a deliberate ploy by the prime minister to duck basic democratic scrutiny, at a time when people’s jobs and livelihoods are on the line.
“By denying parliament a voice, this government is treating the people with contempt.
“The effects of crashing out of the European Union without a deal would be felt for a generation.
“People and parliament together can stop this.
“We’ll support any democratic initiative to stop a disastrous no-deal whether through legislation, a general election or a popular vote.”
 
UCAC will continue to discuss the situation with the TUC and TUC Cymru over the coming days and weeks.
