United Kingdom trade not to be affected by Brexit: Crispin Simon

Theresa May plans to ask MPs for more time

Theresa May plans to ask MPs for more time

But he confirmed a meaningful vote on whether to accept or reject a revised deal might not happen until March.

Labour is proposing its own Brexit plan, which would involve the United Kingdom staying in a customs union with the EU, which they say could get the backing of a majority of MPs.

Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.

May is due to report back to parliament on her negotiations with the European Union on 13 February, a few weeks after she secured MPs' support to go back to Brussels.

On Wednesday, Mrs May will ask MPs for more time to get legally-binding changes to the controversial Northern Irish backstop, which she believes will be enough to secure a majority in Parliament for her deal.

On Thursday - Valentine's Day - MPs will consider a motion on Brexit and a series of amendments, likely to include shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer's attempt to impose a new deadline for a vote on the deal.

Mr Fox has previously said that he'd have "40 trade deals ready for one second after midnight" on March 29. He pledged to give parliament a fresh vote on Britain's options by February 27 if May does not come back with new concessions before then.

"I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and objective on what we are doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that Parliament very firmly has".

Prime Minister Theresa May is set to ask MPs for more time to negotiate changes to the Irish border backstop with European Union leaders.

DIT says that with the agreement the British vehicle industry, which has consistently warned against a no-deal Brexit, could avoid up to £8m a year in tariff charges on their exports that would apply if the agreement had not been reached.

May has been seeking changes to the deal with Brussels since it was rejected by a record majority in parliament on January 15.

The EU and the Irish Government have insisted that the backstop is the best way of guaranteeing there will be no hard border in Ireland.
