Brexit: Debate on Second EU Referendum After Millions Sign Petition

An online petition that calls for a second EU referendum will be debated in Parliament after it was signed by more than 4.1 million people. The Petitions Committee said the debate would be on 5 September as a “huge number” had signed it. But the committee said the debate did not mean it was supporting the call for a second referendum and it was “too late” to change the referendum rules.
The UK voted to leave the EU by 52% to 48% in the referendum on 23 June. The petition, set up on 25 May before the referendum, states: “We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the Remain or Leave vote is less than 60%, based on a turnout of less than 75%, there should be another referendum.”
