WARRINGTON'S two MPs are urging the Prime Minister to rule out crashing out of the European Union without a deal.

With less than a week to go until the ‘meaningful vote’ on the Brexit deal, pressure is mounting on Theresa May as she faces calls to drop her controversial plan.

Warrington North MP Helen Jones has signed a letter to the Prime Minister, along with more than 200 MPs, to prevent a no-deal scenario.

She believes crashing out without a deal would be ‘incredibly damaging’ for Warrington North residents.

The letter says failing to secure a deal would cause ‘unnecessary economic damage’.

It adds: “We the undersigned members of Parliament, business leaders and representatives are writing to you about the threat that leaving the European Union without a deal poses to the manufacturing industry.

“A whole generation of young people have had the opportunity to access world-class training and gone onto highly skilled well-paid employment in manufacturing with iconic, global and market-leading companies.

“As a result, the aspirations of a generation have been raised.

“As a cross-party group of MPs, business leaders and representatives, we are united in our determination that the UK must not crash out of the EU without a deal.

“We urge the Government to agree a mechanism that would ensure a ‘no-deal’ Brexit could not take place and are confident this is a path that Parliament would support.”

Warrington South MP Faisal Rashid has also raised serious concerns over the issue.

He believes a no deal is ‘completely unacceptable’ for Warrington and says he will be supporting efforts to prevent the ‘disastrous outcome’.

“Since my election in 2017, I have consistently sought to respect the outcome of the 2016 referendum, while working to represent the concerns of my constituents on both sides of the debate,” he added.

“This means ensuring that the Government protects existing jobs, living standards and rights as we prepare to leave the EU.

“However, as March 29 draws nearer and the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit increases, the Government is preparing to fail disastrously on all counts.

“I do not accept that the choice now is between the Prime Minister’s deal, or no deal.

“Voting against a bad deal should not be taken as an endorsement of no deal at all.

“Leaving the EU without a deal would be the worst possible outcome to this process, with severe consequences across many areas.

“This would include an end to the frictionless and tariff-free trade with the EU that our manufacturers rely on and no agreement on how to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

“By risking a no-deal Brexit, the Prime Minister appears willing to gamble away thousands of jobs, workers’ rights and living standards.”

A meeting for campaigners who voted to Leave in the EU referendum takes place on Thursday.

Warrington 4 Brexit has organised the event for residents across the town.

It will be held upstairs at the Looking Glass Wetherspoon pub, on Buttermarket Street, from 7pm.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, Warrington for Europe is holding a day of action at the Skittles in the town centre.

The group will be at the Skittles between 10am and 1pm.
