MPs to get key vote on Brexit deal, vows PM

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THERESA May has promised MPs a fi­nal, de­ci­sive vote on her Brexit deal with the EU – but not un­til she has se­cured changes to the Ir­ish back­stop clause.

The PM (above) said she needed “some time” to get the changes she be­lieves MPs want.

She promised to up­date MPs again on 26 Fe­bru­ary and, if she had not got a new deal by then, to give them a say on the next steps in non-bind­ing votes.

Labour leader Jeremy Cor­byn ac­cused Mrs May of “run­ning down the clock” in an ef­fort to “black­mail” MPs into back­ing her deal.

Labour claims the PM is plan­ning to de­lay the fi­nal, bind­ing vote on the with­drawal deal she has agreed with the EU un­til the last pos­si­ble mo­ment, so that MPs will be faced with a stark choice be­tween her deal and no deal.
