If the new texts change something then why isn't that reflected in a changed text for the Withdrawal Agmt? I've not had a reply to my letter to the Attorney General about the other aspects of the Agmt which concern me & rec'd no good answer when I raised these points last night.— John Redwood (@johnredwood) March 12, 2019
