A Tory backbench modified documentation – understood to have No 10’s backing – presents MPs more of a talk over the disputed issue of the Northern Ireland backstop. DUP leader Arlene Foster dissolved it as “legislative tinkering” while Tory Brexiteers said it was “desperate”.
Many MPs have proclaimed the concerns about the backstop, targeted at restraining a “hard border” on the island of Ireland.
It would mean Northern Ireland ranging to some EU rules which many MPs say is unreasonable.
The UK would also not be able to leave the back stand without EU agreement. Cabinet minister are visiting surround the UK on Friday as Theresa May carries on to seek assistance for her Brexit deal.
The termination deal swung between the UK and EU has been authenticated by the EU leaders, but must be sponsored by Parliament if it is to come into the party.
MPs will take the decision whether to accept it or not, but many of Tories are assumed to deny it, as will the DUP, whose assistance keeps Mrs May’s government in power.
Downing Street has cancelled reports the vote could be discharged, although the Chairman of Tory backbenchers, Sir Graham Brady has claimed he would “welcome the vote being deferred” if it meant concerns about the backstop could be addressed”.
The Health Secretary Matt Hancock told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that “the best thing for the country” was for MPs to back Mrs May’s deal: “I think we should win the vote, don’t prejudge it. ”
“ My view is we should continue the debate. We’ve had three days, there’s two days more. I think we should make the argument, make the case and persuade people – that’s what you have the Parliamentary debate for.”
The Prime minister has recommended that MPs could be “given a roll” in determining whether to activate the backstage, and a Tory backbench reformation was forced to aspire to do that.
