She also stated that if the agreement bill were to pass, there would be enough time made available to pass the required legislation and set up another referendum. She also warned the supporters that in order to realize their dreams on the Brexit, they would have to vote for the withdrawal agreement bill.

The opportunity to have their say for every MP of every party will be given throughout the bill. She added in the end that the people of the country wanted to leave the EU and that the parliament is to work for that goal.
