Brexit: deal, no deal or delay

That's because May has been unable to persuade Brussels to change the agreement, which her team negotiated a year ago, and put in legally binding reassurances that the United Kingdom will not become trapped in a long-term customs arrangement with the European Union.

It is understood this would be a legally binding interpretation of the Withdrawal Agreement, but it would not alter the text of the agreement.

May's government has been scrambling since a deal she presented to parliament in January was voted down in the one of the strongest defeats in recent history.

Participating would put the United Kingdom government at odds with Brexiters.

May's spokesman, Slack, said the vote "will take place tomorrow", but it was unclear exactly what motion would be put to lawmakers.

"Tonight we will be laying two new documents to the House - a joint legally binding instrument on the withdrawal agreement and a joint statement to supplement the political declaration", he added.

He said: "If all that's happening is to turn this letter into an interpretative tool for legal purposes, I remind the house what the prime minister said on 14 January about this letter". As a result, she can not be forced from office for a year.

"It looks as though she's bringing back the same deal so it looks as though we will have the same result and it will be thrown out", Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell said.

The prospect of a vote on no-deal could also deepen the divisions within the Cabinet, potentially leading to further ministerial resignations.

To guide the Eurosceptics, the deal was due to be examined by a committee of eight lawyers in the ERG, including Sir Bill Cash and the former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab.

No-deal Brexit would cause lasting damage to health sector, says minister
If her deal is rejected, there will be two more votes this week to give MPs the final say on ruling out a no-deal scenario. As it's defeated, a vote on no-deal Brexit will then be held on March 13 to see if there is explicit consent on this path.

The wording of the motion that parliament votes on will be subject to amendments. The Environment Secretary declared that "everyone who believes in democracy" should get behind the Prime Minister's deal.

MPs will vote whether to leave without a deal on March 13.

However, May could come back with another attempt at a meaningful vote at some point over the course of the week, especially if she only loses by a narrow amount. May promised to secure the required changes and re-introduce the agreement in parliament. "It is this deal, or #Brexit may not happen at all".

Cabinet minister Andrea Leadsom said on Saturday Parliament would be given more opportunities to vote on the deal if the European Union improves its offer before exit day.

Brexit-supporting lawmakers in Britain fear the backstop could be used to bind the country to European Union regulations indefinitely.

If May's deal is rejected, the government has promised to give lawmakers the chance to show they want to pursue leaving the European Union without a formal deal.

Labour MP Pat McFadden said any vote had to be on the Brexit deal, as now constituted, and not a version of the deal ministers might hope to end up with after further talks with the EU.

However, "Parliament could choose to hold another vote of no confidence in her government, which they did after the last meaningful vote", said Maddy Thimont Jack, a researcher at the Institute for Government in London.

Their face-to-face talks are due to start in an hour.

And May doesn't really have much way in stopping that from happening as if she delays those votes further, expect a massive uproar in parliament to happen.
