Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said: "I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and goal on what we are 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". A similar motion will be tabled on Thursday if, as seems inevitable, May has not yet agreed enough changes to her overwhelmingly rejected departure plan to put it to another vote.

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".

"I am clear that I am going to deliver Brexit, I am going to deliver it on time, that is what I am going to do for the British public. That isn't right in terms of the respect for parliament", said Starmer.

"We shouldn't be put in a position where the clock is run down and the prime minister says it's either my deal or even worse", Labour's Brexit pointman Keir Starmer told The Sunday Times.

Challenged on whether there would be a vote on the deal this month, rather than on another series of amendments, he said: "If the meaningful vote has not happened, so in other words things have not concluded, then Parliament would have that further opportunity by no later than 27 February".

"I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and objective on what we are 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".




If no agreement on changes to the backstop are reached by Wednesday Mrs May is set to ask for more time for negotiations and will table a motion for debate.

The UK is set to leave the European Union on 29 March.

May has been seeking changes to the deal with Brussels since it was rejected by a record majority in parliament on January 15.

The opposition Labour party has denounced May's strategy as time-wasting aimed at forcing parliament to vote through a deal at the last moment. The prime minister is now in talks with Brussels to seek these changes to the backstop.

The impasse has left the world's fifth largest economy facing an uncertain future, rattling financial markets and businesses about the prospect of a disorderly exit from the bloc that could damage the economy.

He told the Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme that it would lead to a "very hard border" on the island of Ireland and is contrary to the Good Friday Agreement, the peace deal he helped negotiate which brought an end to The Troubles.
