Following tonight's overwhelming defeat of the government's Brexit bill, James Cox, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Bristol West, said:
"Parliament has delivered its verdict on the Brexit deal and it is overwhelming. This deal is wrong for Bristol and wrong for Britain.
"The only way forward now is to give the people the final say on the deal through a people's vote with the option to remain in the European Union. Liberal Democrats have been calling for it from day one and we will continue to lead the fight in Parliament, Bristol and the country.
"Our MP and the Labour Party needs to find their backbone, drop their plans to deliver a Labour Brexit and join me and the Liberal Democrats in calling for a People's Vote.
The government has lost by a majority of 230 and a vote of no confidence in the government has been called for Wednesday.
