Andrew Bridgen urges the Government not to disclose their negotiating strategy ahead of Brexit

7th December 2016

Speaking in the Commons debate, Andrew Bridgen urges the Government not to be persuaded to disclose their negotiating strategy ahead of negotiations for Britain to leave the EU.

Q8. As we are about to commence the most important negotiation for decades, does my right hon. Friend agree that forcing the Government to disclose their negotiating strategy at this stage is rather like showing one’s hand of cards to an opponent before a game of poker. I urge him to take no advice from the Labour party; it has only one card to play—and it is always the joker. [907707]

 

We have always said that we would come up with some more details about our strategic aims going into the negotiation, but it would harm our national interest if we were to go into the sort of detailed explanation of our negotiating position that the Opposition urge upon us. That is not how any of the other 27 Governments are either acting or thinking, and we should learn from that example.
