Job losses likely in 'brutal' no deal Brexit, Theresa May told

Brexit,Theresa May

The promise is a bid to avert a showdown on Thursday, when parliament is set to vote on the next moves in the Brexit process.

Labour's Brexit policy chief Keir Starmer told the Sunday Times newspaper that his party would seek to use the debate in parliament this week to prevent May from waiting until the last minute to come back with a deal, and compel her to present a fresh accord for lawmakers to consider before February 26.

The prime minister is aiming to allay lawmaker concern that, unless they vote to take control of the process and order her to seek an extension of European Union negotiations, they will have lost their chance to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

He underlined that a possible no deal Brexit will mean a "really hard border between the north and south of Ireland, contrary to the Good Friday Agreement".

May's Brexit minister Stephen Barclay will meet European Union negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday and foreign minister Jeremy Hunt will visit Paris and Warsaw this week.

But in an effort to see off attempts to bind the Government's hands, Downing Street is promising another opportunity to table amendments - which are likely to include measures aimed at taking a no-deal Brexit off the table - on February 27.

But there is no commitment to hold a binding vote on the deal itself by the end of the month.

May is due to report back to parliament on her negotiations with the European Union on 13 February, a few weeks after she secured MPs' support to go back to Brussels.

Housing minister James Brokenshire said on Sunday May would commit to giving parliament another debate on Brexit with the chance to vote on alternative options, if a deal had not yet been agreed and voted upon by then.

However, one company representative present said they felt left "high and dry", adding that no real advice could be given because "they haven't got a clue what is going to happen". "That isn't right in terms of the respect for parliament", said Starmer.

"It seems to me we're now at the point where we can have meaningful talks to get a deal between the main political party leaders", he said.

"Or the only way to break the impasse is to have a public vote, and that remains our policy".
