UK: Theresa May to bring Brexit deal back to lawmakers in June

  • Government Brexit talks with Labour face deadline

Peter Bone has said it is "absurd" for the Prime Minister to bring her Withdrawal Agreement Bill back to the Commons for a fourth time.

A spokesman said: "This evening the Prime Minister met the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons to make clear our determination to bring the talks to a conclusion and deliver on the referendum result to leave the EU".

"I think the House will have to then address a much more fundamental question between whether it will pursue. a no-deal option or whether it will revoke" the entire Brexit process, Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay told the Lords EU Committee. The United Kingdom is now scheduled to leave, with or without a deal to smooth the exit, by October 31.

Asked whether the vote would be considered a "confidence" vote for the Prime Minister, a source said: "That's not the world that we are now in but clearly the significance of this piece of legislation can't and I suspect won't be underestimated".

All recent polling points to victory for Nigel Farage's Brexit Party which has eaten into support for the Conservatives and his former party UKIP.

Jeremy Corbyn's spokesman repeatedly said the party would not support the WAB if no cross-party agreement was reached, but refused to say whether Labour MPs would abstain, which could allow the Bill to receive its second reading, or vote against it and potentially consign it to defeat. This might suggest that the Prime Minister would be taking a significant risk by introducing the key legislation.

"No leader can bind his or her successor so the deal would likely be at best temporary, at worst illusory", said the letter which was signed by Gavin Williamson, who was sacked as defense secretary earlier this month, and former foreign minister Boris Johnson.

Britain could then leave the European Union on 31 July.

"When MPs come to look at that (bill), they will recognise that we have a duty in parliament to deliver on the result of the referendum and deliver Brexit", she said.

Cross-party Brexit talks between Labour and the Tories have so far failed to produce a compromise agreement.

Labour wants the United Kingdom to remain in the EU customs union in any Brexit scenario. It is also the Peterborough byelection, which Labour, the Tories and the Brexit party are tightly contesting, on 6 June.

"If the prime minister brings the withdrawal bill to the Commons for a vote, the question will be "what has changed"?" asked Nigel Dodds, parliamentary leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up May's minority government.

May's chief Brexit negotiator, Olly Robbins, is due in Brussels to discuss changes to the political declaration on the UK's future relationship with the EU.

And Labour, the principal opposition party, while politically committed to leaving the European Union, also opposes the deal over issues of workers' rights and those of European Union nationals living in Britain and British nationals living within the EU.

Downing Street says it's imperative the Withdrawal Bill is approved before the Commons' summer recess.

May's spokesperson described Tuesday's talks as "constructive" but Labour said it needed "further movement from the government".
