Theresa May Set To Lay Out Brexit Deal Plan B

Theresa May is to set out her next steps to build a Commons majority for a Brexit deal amid signs she is still unwilling to give ground on her central demands. Following the crushing defeat last week of her agreement with Brussels, the Prime Minister will make oral and written statements to the House explaining how she intends to proceed.

She will also table a ‘neutral’ motion to be debated and voted on – along with any amendments tabled by MPs – on January 29.

Government sources said she would be holding further talks with MPs, as well as business leaders and trade unionists, throughout the week in an attempt to find a way forward.

But after she briefed the Cabinet in a conference call on Sunday about her first round of cross-party contacts last week, there was little expectation she was ready to offer concessions that could win over opposition MPs.

Instead reports suggested she was preparing to press for changes to the Northern Ireland backstop in the hope she can win round Tory Brexiteers and her allies in the DUP who voted against her original deal.

Here is everything you need to know about where the Brexit process is at.

Cross-party talks ‘end without agreement’

Despite efforts to bridge the Brexit divide between the party leaders last week, there is no sign yet that Theresa May is prepared to scrub out her red lines.

The Prime Minister is required to update MPs on her ‘Plan B’ in the Commons on Monday. However, reports suggest she intends to instead press on with attempts to win over her own MPs and the Democratic Unionist Party by assuaging objections to the Irish backstop – aka Plan A.

Brexiteer shift?

The PM met with a group of Brexiteer former ministers on Thursday. Attendee John Whittingdale said it had been a ‘constructive meeting’ and he was convinced an agreement that satisfies a majority of Tories and DUP remained possible.

Meanwhile Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group of Brexiteer MPs, has signalled that he may ultimately choose to support Mrs May’s deal.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday the leading Eurosceptic said that in a choice between the withdrawal agreement and no Brexit he would back her deal.
