Vara calls for better co-operation in the national interest

26th June 2017

Shailesh Vara welcomes the Government’s deal with the DUP in the national interest and calls on Labour to work constructively with the Government at this crucial time in our history.

There has been much reference to the national interest this afternoon, and I commend my right hon. Friend for doing a deal with the DUP in the national interest. However, given this crucial time in our history and the challenges that lie ahead, does he agree that now is the time for Labour to work constructively with the Government for the greater good of the nation, not to seek to score political points?

 

I agree with my hon. Friend’s wise point. It is never too late to repent, and if the Opposition Front-Bench team want to adopt a more constructive attitude, I would very much welcome that.
