The government are planning a power grab. Sign the petition to stop it in its tracks.
The government are planning a power grab. On Tuesday, despite not winning a majority in June, they will attempt to push through a motion to give them a majority on key scrutiny committees.
If it goes through, Parliamentary opposition to Brexit will be dealt a major blow.
The motion, which has not been published yet, is being tabled by Commons leader Andrea Leadsom. What it does is abolish the long-standing convention that standing committees are meant to reflect the composition of the House. If you remember – the Tories did not win a majority in June.

Stop the Tories trying to rig Parliament in their favour
