Switzerland and United Kingdom complete post-Brexit trade deal

She'll say that if she hasn't brought them new deal by February 27, there will then be another opportunity to vote, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire confirmed in an interview.

In a letter to the Labour leader released on Sunday evening, the prime minister also dismissed Corbyn's call for the United Kingdom to remain in a customs union with Brussels. One, which called for permanent membership of the customs union, would have guaranteed a very soft Brexit.

A senior minister, James Brokenshire, has suggested there will be no such vote until March, which would leave less than 29 days until Brexit.

As the Prime Minister prepares to update MPs on the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations on Tuesday afternoon - a day earlier than expected - Andrea Leadsom dismissed the prospect of Mrs May adopting Jeremy Corbyn's "world view". I think you would need to have a time limit.

The EU has urged May to grasp Labour's compromise offer rather than press ahead with her preferred option of getting her own divided party onside by renegotiating a clause in the exit agreement relating to the Northern Irish border.

The Leave campaign figurehead was speaking as Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay prepared for talks with European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier as the Government stepped up efforts to secure changes to the backstop, which is created to keep the Irish border open after the UK's withdrawal.

Mrs Leadsom said: "I think she's making quite clear that what Corbyn is demanding is actually not as good as what the Prime Minister's deal is offering".

At the meeting, Department for Trade officials were probed on the pledge by Mr Fox that he would sign free trade agreements to replicate the EU's 40 existing deals with countries around the world.

She also questioned whether the call for "frictionless" trade would mean reneging on Labour's commitment to end free movement.

The existing Political Declaration, setting out the goals for the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the EU, "explicitly provides for the benefits of a customs union - no tariffs, fees, charges or quantitative restrictions across all sectors and no checks on rules of origin", Mrs May told Mr Corbyn.

Treasury Chief Secretary Liz Truss refused to rule out resigning if Mrs May backed a customs union.

She talked up hope of a breakthrough with Brussels, insisting: "I believe we can reach a deal that this House can support".

The government survived a similar series of votes last month, backing a bid that approved the Brexit deal in principal if the controversial Irish backstop was replaced with "alternative arrangements".

But senior backbench Conservative Party member of Parliament Boris Johnson, a strong supporter of a hard exit from the European Union, told Radio 4's Today program May should stop exchanging letters with Corbyn and focus on renegotiating the Irish backstop portion of the proposed withdrawal deal, which has been its most contentious component.
