Brexit: Ministers may have broken rules by not publishing legal advice - Speaker

Brexit: Ministers may have broken rules by not publishing legal advice - Speaker

His assessment means Parliament will debate the issue Tuesday, likely delaying the start of the main Brexit debate.

But the problem - seven days out from the vote - hasn't changed: Up to 100 Conservative MPs quite simply think this deal is so bad that they are not prepared to vote for it.

He added that it seemed that lawyers would have to take cases in global court, "rather than this sovereign parliament being able to decide when we can get out of these arrangements".

Japanese automakers Honda and Nissan have warned that new tariffs or other trade barriers with the European Union would damage their competitiveness of their British factories, which employ thousands of people.

"The referendum was a vote to bring our European Union membership to an end and to create a new role for our country in the world". Under May's deal, Britain has "surrendered our voice, our vote and our veto". "A Brexit that takes back control of our borders, laws and money".

At that point, she could face a no confidence vote in the Commons and a confidence vote from her own MPs.

May has stuck rigidly to the line that she can win the parliamentary vote on Brexit, and she's also embarked on a charm offensive to win public backing for the deal - seen by some as a dry-run for a future election campaign.

She added that which channel would host the programme was still "being worked out", with less than a week to go until it is supposed to go ahead.

"We shouldn't dismiss out of hand the idea of asking the people again what future they want, as we all now have a better understanding of the potential paths before us", Gyimah wrote.




"I will still have a job in two weeks' time", May said in an interview with ITV television when asked if she would quit if she lost the vote.

"My job is making sure that we do what the public asked us to, we leave the European Union but we do it in a way that is good for them".

"This is not a, sort of "oh, well, it's just any old vote".

Protesters outside the House of Commons demanding a People's Vote.

Deputy DUP leader Nigel Dodds said: "The overall context of this is ... a deeply unattractive, unsatisfactory presentation and he (Cox) needs to therefore rather than recommend this agreement, recommend that it is rejected".

"Let us suppose I had given advice ... covering all sorts of matters, including our relationships with foreign states. including matters of acute importance to this country, would it be right for the Attorney General, regardless of the harm to the public interest, to divulge his opinion. The end point is getting a good deal through for the United Kingdom and delivering on what people voted for, that is what drives me".

Cox also sought to sell the Brexit deal to MPs on the grounds that it represented "a calculated risk" that MPs should consider before supporting May's final Brexit deal.

Asked if the Government had drafted a clause for the Withdrawal Agreement that would have allowed the United Kingdom to opt out of the backstop unilaterally, Mr Robbins said: "Ministers asked us to look at a whole range of options for how to bring the backstop to an end and so we did".
