If you are still in touch with your MP, Geraint Davies's motion calling on parliament to allow UK citizens to agree the terms of any UK-EU exit package or stay in the EU by default needs MPs signatures to get it through.
If this doesn't interest you please simply ignore this post.
Those who are interested and think they could "nag" their MP to get on board with this will find the wording of the motion below, plus a link you could send your MP so he/she doesn't have to go find it.

Early day motion 243
REFERENDUM ON AGREEING THE TERMS OF THE UK-EU EXIT PACKAGE OR ON THE UK REMAINING IN THE EU
- Session: 2016-17
- Date tabled: 27.06.2016
- Primary sponsor: Davies, Geraint
That this House notes that the EU membership referendum was lost by only 1.25 million votes, 1.9 per cent; further notes that 3.7 million people have called for a second referendum in a petition as the winning margin was less than 60 per cent and the turnout less than 75 per cent; notes that the decision is binding on future generations; notes that the pledges to reinvest £350 million in the NHS and to curb immigration on which voters relied have been withdrawn; believes that UK citizens must agree on the terms of leaving the EU and, if not satisfied, be given the opportunity to opt for the UK to remain an EU member; calls on the Government to ensure that there will be a referendum allowing UK citizens to agree on the terms of the UK-EU exit package and associated constitutional changes or on the option to remain; and further believes that this referendum should be called before Article 50 is triggered.
