Valerie responds to an emergency business statement

After the House of Commons voted to extend Article 50 by a majority of 210 votes (Ayes: 412, Noes: 202) on  Thursday 14 March 2019, I responded to an emergency business statement from the Leader of the House:

“Yet again the House has been given an emergency motion, and yet again we have only just had sight of it—a colleague has managed to get us copies of it. This is no way to run a Government and no way to run a country. We now have a situation where the Government are voting against their own motions, which is a terrible state of affairs. The Government are staggering from week to week, day to day, and motion to motion. The country deserves better.”
