Theresa May to bring Brexit withdrawal bill before Parliament in early June

Sacked defence secretary Gavin Williamson is among the ex-ministers warning against a customs union

The announcement came after May met Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for an hour on Tuesday evening as part of the ongoing talks between the frontbenches to find a way through the Brexit stalemate.

A handout photograph taken and released by the UK Parliament on 3 April 2019 shows Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaking during the weekly Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) question and answer session in the House of Commons in London.

May's deal has been rejected three times by parliament and the government said on Tuesday it now planned to bring forward the legislation required to ratify an exit deal early next month.

Brexit had been due to take place on March 29 but lawmakers rejected the withdrawal agreement that Ms.

The Government will bring Theresa May's deal to the House of Commons for a FOURTH time in the week beginning 3rd June.

"Her withdrawal deal will not get through parliament". But if we, under a new leader, reinvent ourselves properly as a Brexit party, we will be faced with the inevitability at some point of a general election in order to deliver Brexit because this parliament is stopping the delivery of Brexit.

Chuka Umunna, a former Labour MP who defected from the party to set up the centrist Change UK party, said in a tweet that Labour was "offering Theresa May and her Brexit plan a lifeline".

Almost three years after the United Kingdom voted 52% to 48% to leave the European Union, politicians still disagree about when, how or even if the divorce will take place.

The ongoing Brexit shambles has already brought about enormous damage, which would only be exacerbated if we actually leave the EU.

A Downing Street spokesman said the talks between Mrs May and Mr Corbyn were "useful and constructive".

Doris Day Dead - Legendary Actress Passes Away at 97
For all of her acclaim as an actress, Doris Day said her days as a big band singer were "the happiest times in my life". Day was briefly a vocalist for Bob Crosby's big band before settling into a long job with Les Brown's band in 1940.

But progress has been slow.

May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn sat down for talks again on Tuesday ahead of further discussions between the government and opposition on Wednesday.

May has said she will step down once the first phase of Brexit is complete.

Shailesh Vara, the junior Northern Ireland minister, became the first member of May's government to resign over the deal on Thursday.

Instead, May will publish the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - the legislation required for Britain to leave the European Union with a deal - in the week beginning June 3 to force MPs into a choice between the deal or the possibility of Brexit being cancelled. It would be followed by negotiations on a new trade deal with the EU.

The DUP repeated its opposition to the concept of the Irish backstop element of her agreement.

However, the spokesman said while the party could not back May's deal as it stood, he did not rule out abstaining in the vote, which might allow it to muster enough support to pass.

"If the Prime Minister brings the Withdrawal bill to the Commons for a vote the question will be 'what has changed, '" asked Nigel Dodds, parliamentary leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up Ms.

Defeat in the vote would likely spell the end of May's divorce deal and probably her premiership.
