Labour MP for Hove, Peter Kyle Credit: ITV Meridian

Labour MP for Hove, Peter Kyle, has said he was against triggering Article 50. Earlier in the year, he joined 18 other Labour backbenchers in offering an amendment to the Bill which would see it thrown out.

Now that the UK is going forward with its exit from the EU - Kyle wants Theresa May to be transparent about what will be delivered and to give the public a true understanding of what will happen next.
