May Asks UK Law Makers For More Time To Rework Brexit Deal

May also hinted that a provision in the UK's Constitutional Reform and Governance Act, which dictates that worldwide treaties must sit for 21 days of parliamentary sittings before they can be ratified, would be waived to give her government more time to broker an acceptable deal with the EU.

"Some countries have said that they didn't like, for example, the human rights elements that were incorporated by the European Union and they would like us to drop those in order to roll the agreements over", Fox said while answering questions in parliament on his department's progress towards striking trade deals.

Mrs May told MPs on Tuesday she was discussing a number of options with the European Union to secure legally binding changes to the backstop, including replacing it with "alternative arrangements", putting a time limit on how long it can stay in place, or a unilateral exit clause so the United Kingdom can leave it at a time of its choosing.

The prime minister has promised to return to the Commons on 26 February with a further statement - triggering another debate and votes the following day - if a deal has not been secured by that date.

But the Brexit secretary said May was "very clear that we are committed to leaving on March 29".

"That ends on March 29", she told MPs at Prime Minister's questions.

The ERG looks likely to vote against May's Brexit motion on Thursday, because "it rules out no deal and removes our negotiating leverage in Brussels", according to the group's vice chair Mark Francois.

Mrs May is facing a fresh attempt by a cross-party group of MPs to prevent a no-deal Brexit if she can not reach an agreement with Brussels by mid-March.

Unless May can get a Brexit deal approved by British Parliament, she will have to decide whether to delay Brexit or thrust the world's fifth largest economy into chaos by leaving without a deal.

Ever since, the premier has been trying to secure changes to the accord that would satisfy parliament's lower House of Commons.

He said members had "pleaded" with Downing Street to change the wording, which he said goes back on what the prime minister has previously told MPs.

But Labour pledged to oppose the move, accusing the Government of showing "contempt for our democracy".

"We want to leave with a deal, and that's what we're working for".

French wine and spirits exporters say they are "in the total fog" over Brexit.

Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper, one of the leading campaigners against Brexit without a deal, unveiled a new plan to ensure parliament has a chance to vote on ruling out a no-deal scenario. March, leave. The agreement on the modalities of the withdrawal, the May with the European Union, which had already been negotiated fell through in mid-January in the British Parliament.

Veteran Tory Europhile Kenneth Clarke has tabled a further amendment, backed by senior figures from across the House including Harriet Harman, which would allow MPs to vote for their preferred Brexit outcome.

He was overheard by ITV News correspondent Angus Walker in a hotel bar apparently suggesting if Mrs May's deal didn't pass through the Commons, Brexit could be delayed for 21 months.

He declined to say whether Labour MPs would be disciplined for disobeying the whip in upcoming Brexit votes. "She is playing for time and playing with people's jobs, our economic security and the future of our industry", he said.
