Rutland's MP says an election wouldn't solve Brexit issue

Sir Alan Duncan spoke during the debate in Parliament

Rutland's MP has revealed his doubts a general election would have solved the Brexit issue anyway.

Sir Alan Duncan supported the Government last night but revealed several concerns.

He also used his speech during the debate to call for an end to the fixed term Parliament act which means the Prime Minister needs a two thirds majority before they can call a general election.

In addition he expressed his hope a way could be found which would see the 21 rebels who've been thrown out of the party allowed back in to contest their seats for the party.
