We can reach a Brexit deal parliament can support - PM May

We can reach a Brexit deal parliament can support - PM May

May opened her letter, which can be read here, by welcoming Corbyn's support for a deal.

She'll say that if she hasn't brought them new deal by February 27, there will then be another opportunity to vote, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire confirmed in an interview.

"In particular, I believe that we have a shared determination across the House not to allow the UK's leaving the European Union to mean any lowering of standards in relation to workers' rights, environmental protections, or health and safety".

Mrs May is due to make a statement to MPs - a day earlier than had been expected - ahead of a debate on Thursday on the next steps for Brexit.

And now more than a dozen ministers could join the revolt at the showdown on February 27 as MPs said the votes will be the crunch moment for a no deal.

"We are determined to organize via this accord an orderly exit" of the United Kingdom from the European Union, Michel Barnier, the bloc's chief Brexit negotiator, told reporters in Luxembourg.

Look away now if you are of a nervous disposition.

The prime minister's Brexit deal was rejected by a huge margin in the Commons last month, and she remains officially committed to renegotiating it as soon as possible.

That might mean that she's back before the end of this month with something concrete to vote on.

She told Sky News: "I absolutely do not think that should be our policy".

News reports the man had entered the press area and allegedly went after the journalists before another man wrestled him away. A BBC spokeswoman said Skeans was "violently pushed and shoved by a member of the crowd" as he covered the rally.

The deal will also apply to Liechtenstein - represented by foreign minister Aurelia Frick - under the Swiss-Liechtenstein Customs Union.

Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel says the U.K.is a "disunited kingdom" where pro-Brexit politicians lack ideas and courage. But many Conservative MPs are anxious that this arrangements suits the EU, so it may stall talks and leave Britain trapped in the customs union indefinitely.

The news has been welcomed by business groups including the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) who say it will help to support jobs and ensure businesses can keep trading without disruption. With the International Trade Secretary, Liam Fox adding that it will "further strengthen the trading relationship" between the United Kingdom and Switzerland, which was worth 32.1 billion pounds in 2017. Despite admitting in December she would have lost the meaningful vote if it had gone ahead, it was reported at the time of the January Brexit ballot that May hoped assurances from European Union leaders over the controversial Irish backstop might be enough to help garner more support. He has also faced pressure from some of his MPs to push for another public vote on Brexit.

Mrs May gave brief responses and questions to some of Mr Corbyn's points, but said the details were best hammered out between their teams.

Especially when it says and I quote: "the parties will form separate markets and distinct legal orders.' And concedes that it 'can lead to a spectrum of different outcomes for administrative processes as well as checks and controls" nothing is secured.

Mr Corbyn said: "The prime minister is playing for time and playing with people's jobs, our economic security and the future of our industry".

Mr Speaker there is a sensible way forward but the Prime Minister is refusing to listen.

Members of the Alternative Arrangements Working Group - including Conservative MPs Steve Baker, Marcus Fysh, Owen Paterson, Damian Green and Nicky Morgan - attended the meeting.

Barnier said it was up to London to provide clarity on what is next - a view shared by Bettel.
