James Brokenshire says Commons will have chance to block no-deal Brexit

James Brokenshire says Commons will have chance to block no-deal Brexit

"Not only will this help to support jobs throughout the United Kingdom but it will also be a solid foundation for us to build an even stronger trading relationship with Switzerland as we leave the EU", International Trade minister Liam Fox said in a statement.

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay will meet European Union negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday ahead of a crunch moment in parliament on Thursday, when lawmakers will try to force May to change course or give up control of the exit process.

But she again rejected Corbyn's calls for Britain to remain in the customs union after Brexit, arguing it would diminish the country's ability to strike trade deals.

He told the Sunday Times he fears the Prime Minister is "pretending to make progress" but actually intends to return to Parliament after the March 21/22 European Council summit the week before Brexit and offer MPs a "binary choice" - her deal or no deal.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said Sunday that Parliament would get to pass judgment on May's Brexit plan "by no later than February 27".

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. It is that promise that led to this week's vote.

And International Monetary Fund (IMF) boss Christine Lagarde said no arrangement Mrs May reached with Brussels would be as good for the economy as membership - and a no-deal Brexit would be "brutal".

May wrote Sunday to opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, with whom she has talked since her agreement was emphatically defeated in the House of Commons last month.

In his letter to May, the Labour leader set out five demands, including a permanent customs union and close alignment with the single market.

Mrs May described discussions with European Union leaders in Brussels as "robust but constructive" and insisted she was determined to "negotiate hard" over the coming days to secure legally-binding changes to the Agreement which will render it acceptable to Parliament.

There are few signs of concessions coming May's way from Brussels. Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay is set to head to Brussels on Monday for talks.

The sides are stuck on the issue of how to keep the Irish border open after Britain leaves.

May's Northern Irish coalition party also argue that it will splinter their province from mainland Britain.

May has been trying to win a legal assurance giving Britain the right eventually to drop the backstop and negotiate its own trade deals.
