"Today, the Tories have voted for a Bill that will deny rights to children. They have voted for a Bill that will slash the rights of future generations to live and work across 27 other countries. They have voted for a Bill that strips away our guaranteed environmental protections, despite the fact that we are facing a climate emergency.

"These are the actions of an inhumane and insular government, driven by toxic rhetoric rather than the national interest. That is why the Liberal Democrats voted against this Bill today.

"As this damaging Bill progresses through Parliament, the Liberal Democrats will continue to fight to hold the government to account and to secure the rights that the Tories are determined to erase.
