May urges United Kingdom lawmakers: Give me more time to get Brexit deal

May urges U.K. legislators to allow more time to get Brexit deal

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

He said he believed the prime minister was "pretending to make progress" but actually meant 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.

None the less, addressing to a gesture of goodwill from EU leaders, who would want to ensure that UK leaves the bloc with a decipherable deal, which could also pass through to the House of Commons, the UK PM May said, "What I see and hear from leaders is a desire for us to work together to ensure that we can deliver the UK leaving the European Union with a deal".

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.

"The government will commit that if the meaningful vote, in other words the deal coming back, has not happened by the 27th of February, then we would allow a further motion - votable in Parliament - to take place, to give that sense of assurance as to the process moving forward", he told the BBC's "Andrew Marr Show".

"No one could responsibly propose this (a no-deal Brexit)".

In the vote this week lawmakers are set to vote on amendments that could limit May's options and give parliament a broader say over the Brexit process.

"We have got to put a hard stop into this running down the clock", Sir Keir told the Sunday Times.

The PM is due to address the House of Commons this week after returning from negotiations with European Union leaders in Brussels.

The UK has signed an agreement with Switzerland ensuring the trading relationship between the two nations will continue after Brexit, the British government said.

May is seeking changes to her deal with Brussels after it was rejected by a record majority in parliament on January 15.

If May succeeds in winning changes to her Brexit deal in the next few days she could bring it back for a debate and vote before February 14, and this more general debate would not go ahead.

MPs voted to replace the controversial backstop with "alternative arrangements" in a vote on amendments to the PM's Brexit deal last month.

May held talks in Brussels last week in an attempt to secure changes to the Northern Ireland backstop as demanded by Tory MPs. "It would be economically very, very risky for Britain and for the peace process in Northern Ireland, it would potentially be devastating", Blair claimed. European Union leaders, including the Irish premier Leo Varadkar, are refusing to water down the backstop guarantee, despite the United Kingdom parliament calling for the policy to be scrapped.
