This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition Remain should not be on a second referendum ballot paper
we had a referendum to leave or remain in the EU in 2016 and the people voted to leave this part should be honoured and the only vote if there is a second referendum is except the deal on the table or leave with no deal
MP's have done the best they can to go against the will of the people
they have to finish the will of the people and honour the 2016 referendum and put there own issues to one side
Remain should not be aloud to be on the ballot paper they want that on to split the vote to get what they want
the referendum in 2016 was an in or out vote we voted out and the only vote now should be on the deal, as MP's can not get it sorted then that is the only option we should now vote on
This petition closed early because of a General Election Find out more on the Petitions Committee website

Read the response in full
This Government is determined to get Brexit done, with no more delays so the country can move forward and focus on the cost of living, the NHS and other domestic priorities.
We have secured a great new deal with the EU that will allow us to leave in an orderly and friendly way. This new deal ensures that we take back control of our laws, trade, borders and money without disruption, and provides the basis of a new relationship with the EU based on free trade and friendly cooperation. We introduced the necessary legislation, which passed its Second Reading.
Unfortunately Parliament then again voted for delay, rather than a timetable that would have guaranteed that the UK would be in a position to leave the EU on October 31 with a deal.
Throughout this process the Government has been clear; we will not support any legislation that seeks to overturn the result of the 2016 referendum. 17.4 million voters deciding to leave the EU is the largest mandate that has ever been given for any UK Government to deliver.
Now we must deliver on that pledge.
