European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: 8th February 2017

Anna Soubry (Broxtowe) (Con)
Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Paul Blomfield
As it is you.

Anna Soubry
I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. This point is rather important: will he confirm whether the Labour party no longer supports the principle of free movement—yes or no?

Paul Blomfield
We have said time and again that we believe in the reasonable management of migration through the application of fair rules, and I will talk about that specific issue if hon. and right hon. Members will give me the opportunity.
