[The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (Kwasi Kwarteng): As my right hon. Friend knows, the Government have always been committed to honouring the result of the referendum, and we fully intend to leave the EU in an orderly manner, which is why at this late stage I continue to urge Members to back the deal.]
