They spoke in the House of Commons’ Westminster Hall after more than 137,000 people signed a petition calling on the Government to “walk away” from EU talks.
Midlands voter Jack Taylor’s petition submitted last September claimed: “The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal…
“Why wait another 18 months when we could leave right away and fully take back control of our country?”
Tory Leave MP Paul Scully said national splits on Brexit could not be “healed” unless politicians recognised “there are people who feel so passionately” but no-deal would not be the right outcome.
Pro-EU Lib Dem Christine Jardine urged: “Have patience…think about how important this is to the future of our country and give our politicians time to find the best way ahead.”
Brexit Minister Suella Fernandes added: “We don’t believe a ‘punishment deal’ will come to pass.
“We have already made significant progress towards a good deal.”
