    Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable has said "Having seen the Conservative backbenches will not support her deal the Prime Minister must change course. Her deal is doomed to defeat in the Commons, so she should show real leadership by putting this question back to the public in a People's Vote. The EU is clear that there is no more negotiating to do, so it's this deal or No Brexit. That is the choice on which every voter should now have a final say - and Liberal Democrats will campaign vigorously for the UK to remain a full member of the EU."

    Following a disastrous appearance at the Home Affairs Select Committee last week, Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes was brought before the House of Commons yesterday, but was still unable to answer what immigration checks EU citizens will be subject to after Brexit, and how these will apply to those who are already here are therefore entitled to 'settled status'.

    The Home Office is currently trialing the scheme for applying for settled status, but it isn't due to be fully open until March 2019. Nokes boasted that the Home Office has now granted settled status to 1,000 EU citizens, less than 0.03% of the 3.6 million EU citizens currently living in the UK.

    Following the debate, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:

    "Millions of EU citizens in the UK have been living under a cloud of uncertainty for more than two years. After being quizzed by MPs on two separate occasions, the Immigration Minister has utterly failed to offer them any clarity.

    "The one thing the Minister did admit is that the Conservatives will not be able to implement their much-vaunted immigration red lines for years to come.

    "The Conservatives are sleepwalking into another Windrush scandal, where hostile environment checks destroy the lives of people who have every right to be in the UK. The Government's chaotic approach to Brexit risks subjecting EU citizens to those same injustices.

    "Conservative Ministers must end this uncertainty and offer a way out of this mess entirely by giving the people a final say on the Brexit deal, with the option to remain in the EU."

    Commenting on reports that the Government will allow patients cannabis based medicines in exceptional circumstances, Former Liberal Democrat Health Minister Norman Lamb said:

    "This is very welcome and long overdue change, which will be a relief for many patients and their families. It is disgraceful that people have been left to suffer for so long, because the Conservative Government have refused to accept evidence of the benefits of cannabis based medicines.
