The People’s Vote campaign group is calling for a second referendum based on Theresa May’s deal.
Phil Drabble, the Nottingham spokesman for People’s Vote, said: “We believe that the people now that they know more about the implications of coming out of the European Union, now need to be given a chance to say whether they really want to do that.
“What we are trying to achieve is a people’s vote which is effectively a second referendum on whether we should accept the terms of the deal that Theresa May comes up with.”
The Prime Minister visited Grimsby on Friday to deliver a key speech urging MPs and European negotiators to make concessions.
