May to seek MPs' approval for new strategy

May to seek MPs' approval for new strategy

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, but Prime Minister Theresa May has so far failed to convince parliament to back her withdrawal deal, risking a disorderly departure from the bloc.

In his resignation letter, available through PoliticsHome, Eustice said: "I have stuck with the government through a series of rather undignified retreats".

In his letter of resignation, he voiced concern that Mrs May had handed MPs "direct control of events" by announcing that if her Agreement is defeated, she will offer them a vote on whether to rule out a no-deal departure from the European Union on March 29 and whether to request an extension of talks.

Theresa May's Brexit deal could come back before MPs as early as next week, a senior cabinet minister has suggested. She said: "An extension can not take no deal off the table".

But Mr Raab said he was "open minded" about a short delay of a couple of weeks to get the necessary legislation through.

But her announcement angered pro-Brexit lawmakers.

He said he would work from the back benches of Parliament "to try to salvage this sorry situation and I hope that, when the moment comes, Parliament will not let our country down". "This would be the most grievous error that politicians could commit".

Mrs May has now promised that if her latest deal is voted down, lawmakers will get a chance to vote on whether to leave with no deal or to ask the E U to delay the deadline.

Members of parliament voted 432-202 on 15 January to reject her deal, the biggest parliamentary defeat for a government in modern British history, and then on 29 January insisted she renegotiate the Irish border backstop.

Michel Barnier stressed that the main question for the Europeans in the event of a British request for a postponement was to "to what end?" The uncertainty has already led many British firms to shift some operations overseas, stockpile goods or defer investment decisions.

Mrs May stopped short of ruling out no deal entirely. The pound rose above $1.32, its highest level for a month.

Mr Coveney said the European Union may provide an "addition" to the Withdrawal Agreement in a bid to British MPs' concerns surrounding the backstop, but Brussels would not be renegotiating the deal itself.

"The agreement with Eurotunnel secures the government's additional freight capacity, helping ensure that the NHS has essential medicines in the event of a no-deal Brexit", said Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.

Furious Britons have warned the Labour Party that a second Brexit referendum will result in there being "a lot of upset people" across the nation.

Labour's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said the party on Wednesday would put its own Brexit deal proposal up for a parliament vote.

May wants to negotiate changes to the departure deal she agreed with the European Union past year and has promised to bring it back for approval in parliament by March 12 at the latest.

The settlement agreement requires Eurotunnel to improve security and traffic flow at the border, helping to speed the flow of urgent shipments, as well as the goods needed by British businesses, the government said.
