Why Does The Prime Minister Keep Dancing To The Tune Of The European Research Group?

The Prime Minister came to the House to answer questions on the NATO Summit, I asked her why she keeps dancing to the Brexiteers tune. The ink is barely dry on her Chequers deal, but she’s killing it by capitulating to the likes of Rees-Mogg.

Stephen Kinnock: The Prime Minister rightly said that NATO and the EU are the dual cornerstones of our security. Why, then, does she keep dancing to the tune of the European Research Group? Does she see that by capitulating to its proposals on the customs and trade Bills, she is accepting that the Chequers deal is dead in the water?

The Prime Minister: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely wrong in his reference to the agreement that was reached at Chequers. I would not have gone through all the work I did to ensure we reached that agreement only to see it changed in some way through these Bills. They do not change the Chequers agreement, and the Minister will make that clear from the Dispatch Box later today.
