Venki Ramakrishnan reacts to rejection of EU withdrawal bill in House of Commons

16 January 2019

In response to the rejection of the EU withdrawal bill in the House of Commons, Venki Ramakrishnan, President of the Royal Society, said:

"Yesterday’s unprecedented vote makes the prospect of leaving the EU without a deal even more likely. A no deal Brexit would be a disaster for British science and innovation and I urge our elected representatives to put the interests of the country first and get a new plan to prevent this catastrophic outcome."
