MPs will today vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal, after the Prime Minister secured ‘legally binding’ changes from the EU compared to her last deal proposal.
These changes came from some last-minute talks with European Union chiefs last week.
May commented: “The House of Commons will debate the improved deal that these legal changes have created. I will speak in more detail about them when I open that debate.
“MPs were clear that legal changes were needed to the Irish backstop, and today we have secured legal changes. Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal, and to deliver on the instruction of the British people.
“Last November, after two years of hard-fought negotiations, I agreed a Brexit deal with the EU that I passionately believe delivers on the decision taken by the British people to leave the European Union.
“Over the last four months, I have made the case for that deal in Westminster and across the UK. I stand by what that deal achieves for my country.”
The Prime Minister’s last withdrawal bill that was discussed in Parliament was voted down by a huge margin of 230 MPs.
