May will seek 'pragmatic' solution to Brexit deal in Brussels

May has promised MPs that she will bring any revised deal back to be voted on by MPs on February 13.

It came after a report claimed that Nissan was preparing to scrap plans to build its X-Trail 4×4 at its Sunderland plant.

May, writing in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, shed little light on how she meant to solve the issue that has provoked most opposition from her lawmakers, post-Brexit arrangements for the border between the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The head of government wrote in the newspaper: "I'm going to be armed with a fresh mandate, with new ideas and new determination, to agree to a pragmatic solution that provides the Brexit, the British people voted, and at the same time ensures that there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".

Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29, but United Kingdom politicians are divided over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan.

Warnings of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit intensified last week as several multinational firms, including Airbus and Ford, said jobs could suffer with an unfavourable negotiating outcome.

The plans drawn are also to extend Article 50, to secure parliaments backing for a new Brexit deal in April.

Mearns said the AAIB has a "high confidence level" the plane could be in that zone but it could have moved once on the seabed. Bobby Reid scored twice to secure Cardiff City an emotional 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

Mr Coveney said the backstop was required to "ensure the protection of the Good Friday Agreement" which ended 30 years of armed struggle in Northern Ireland.

Writing in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, May said she would be "battling for Britain and Northern Ireland" when she returns to speak to European Union politicians.

On Monday, the House of Commons Brexit Committee is scheduled to visit Brussels to meet Martin Selmayr, the EU negotiator and Commission secretary-general, Sir Tim Barrow, the ambassador to the EU, and Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament Brexit coordinator. Fox told Sky News in a pre-recorded interview.

"This represents a significant step towards delivering Brexit and fulfilling the instruction given to us by the British public".

Despite Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt saying on Thursday that extra time might be needed to finalise the deal, May insisted in her column the departure date won't change. "It is in all our interests to get to that agreement and for the European Union to say we are not going to even discuss it seems to me to be quite irresponsible".

The opposition Labour Party has said May needs to seek a customs union with the EU to win the support of its MPs, something opposed by many in her Conservative Party.
