May to appeal for more time to secure backstop changes

Irish Prime Minister says Brexit deal 'can be done'

She'll say that if she hasn't brought them new deal by February 27, there will then be another opportunity to vote, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire confirmed in an interview.

The head of business lobby group the Confederation of British Industry warned that the chances of Britain leaving the European Union next month without a deal have increased and the country has now entered "the emergency zone".

On Wednesday, Mrs May will ask MPs for more time to get legally-binding changes to the controversial Northern Irish backstop, which she believes will be enough to secure a majority in Parliament for her deal.

Asked by Sky News if she could stay in office if that became government policy, Tuss said: "I absolutely do not think that should be our policy".

She said: 'I'm certain of one thing, it's that it's not going to be as good as if there had not been Brexit, that is for sure.

"There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".

It comes as Mrs May seeks a compromise with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Brexit.

Mr Brokenshire refused to commit to this in an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, saying there could be more votes on amendments to the proposed deal instead.

"That gives that sense of timetable, clarity, and goal on what we're doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that parliament very firmly has", Brokenshire told the BBC.

But in efforts to build cross-party support for a Brexit deal, she offered flexibility on Corbyn's calls to keep up with European Union measures to protect the environment and workers' rights, asking for further talks with Labour "as soon as possible".

He acknowledged that more work was needed to get the United Kingdom ready for Brexit on March 29, telling the BBC's Andrew Marr Show there are "still steps that are currently being put in place" but "there is steady work that is going on, 10,000 civil servants that are now focused on this" and the Border Force was "ramping up" its staff.

But it was rejected by the UK Parliament and if it is not approved by Brexit day, the default position would be a no-deal Brexit.

An amendment being pushed in Parliament on Thursday would oblige the PM to bring her package back before MPs by February 26 - even if she has not managed to get any more concessions from the EU.

The EU and the Irish Government have insisted that the backstop is the best way of guaranteeing there will be no hard border in Ireland.
