European Union wants to ensure United Kingdom leaves with a deal, says PM May

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves Downing Street

'We know that businesses are leaving the country, we know that businesses are making plans that will damage communities across the country and just this week we had a new chapter in the unfolding nightmare that the trade deals that the United Kingdom businesses enjoy through the European Union will not be ready in time for leaving'. It is likely that many amendments similar to those debated on January 29 will be proposed, including attempts to shift control of the process away from government and give parliament a chance to define Brexit.

The Prime Minister is instead offering MPs a further chance to vote on amendments to her Brexit strategy on February 27 in order to avoid a potential Cabinet split this week.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said: "I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and goal on what we are doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that Parliament very firmly has".

May will promise lawmakers a second opportunity to influence the Brexit talks later in the month in a bid to stave off any rebellion from within her own party by those who fear Britain could end up leaving without a deal.

Fox was in Switzerland to sign a continuity trade deal with Swiss Economy Minister Guy Parmelin, to ensure trading relations can continue with as little disruption as possible if Britain leaves the European Union on March 29 without a deal.

"We can't allow that to happen", Sir Keir told The Sunday Times.

In the vote this week lawmakers are set to have their say on amendments that could limit May's options and give parliament a broader say over the Brexit process.

Ms Fairbairn told Sky News" Sophy Ridge On Sunday that firms were already planning "price increases and job reductions' in response to a no-deal Brexit.

Anti-Brexit protestor outside the Houses of Parliament, in Westminster, London.

The impasse risks a chaotic "no deal" departure for Britain, which could be painful for businesses and ordinary people on both sides of the Channel.

The EU and the Irish Government have insisted that the backstop is the best way of guaranteeing there will be no hard border in Ireland.

Brexit backers in May's party think the so-called "backstop" arrangement in the current deal would keep Britain indefinitely tied to European Union rules. The backstop is the main obstacle to securing agreement on the terms of Britain's withdrawal from the EU.
