MP Karen Lee votes for second referendum

Voting records from parliament yesterday show Lincoln’s Labour MP Karen Lee voted for a second referendum or ‘People’s Vote’ as it has become coined as part of the range of Brexit options put to parliament on March 27 and was joined by Scunthorpe’s Labour MP Nic Dakin; but the vote didn’t gain a majority.

A second referendum would mean holding another public vote to confirm any withdrawal agreement agreed by parliament.

In parliament, 268 MPs voted for a second referendum, while 295 voted against.
