UK MPs To Vote On Prime Minister’s Amended BREXIT Deal

MPs in the UK will vote on Theresa May’s BREXIT deal later after she secured “legally binding” changes to it following last-minute talks with the EU in Strasbourg.

May says the changes meant the Irish backstop the insurance policy designed to avoid a hard border in Ireland could not “become permanent”.

At a press conference with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Mrs May said she had delivered what parliament asked her to do.

Speaking alongside Mrs May in Strasbourg, Mr Juncker warned if the deal was voted down, there would be “no third chance”.

Last time Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement was put to parliament in January, it was voted down by a historic margin of 230.

The UK is set to leave the EU on 29 March 2019 after voting to leave by nearly 52% to 48% 17.4m votes to 16.1m in 2016.
