UK government has rejected petition for second Brexit referendum
The UK Prime Minister David Cameron has formally rejected a second Brexit referendum despite an official petition which received more than 4.1 million signatures.
Normally when a petition on parliament’s website hits 100,000 signatures, the Petitions Committee considers it for a parliamentary debate.
However, the government has decided to push on with Brexit without a debate on a second referendum.
In a statement released by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the government was now fully committed to securing a Brexit deal.
‘The Prime Minister and Government have been clear that this was a once in a generation vote and, as the Prime Minister has said, the decision must be respected, The Daily Mail reports.
