  • May prepares climbdown on Brexit leaving date

This would create significant difficulties if the negotiations were to continue until the 59th minute of the 11th hour, as the Secretary of State suggested to us might happen.

Prime Minister Theresa May vowed to put the exact Brexit time and date into the EU Withdrawal Bill now being discussed in the Commons.

Best for Britain CEO Eloise Todd said: "The government should drop this idiotic departure date amendment".

Theresa May yesterday held "constructive" talks with German MEP Manfred Weber, an ally of chancellor Angela Merkel, in which she made it clear the United Kingdom is seeking a unique trade deal with the EU, No.10 said.

The finding was opposed by Conservative MPs Jacob Rees-Mogg, Peter Bone, Christopher Chope and Craig Mackinlay as well as the DUP's Sammy Wilson.

That said, the Government has so far only committed to this in principle and has not published a draft amendment, so, as Grieve commented, we'll need to wait to see the detail of what they are proposing. For example, an "Approval and Implementation Bill" that simply states "the Withdrawal Agreement is hereby approved and forms part of United Kingdom law" would provide minimal scope for Parliament to dictate how the Agreement would apply in practice and would therefore amount to little more than a "yes/no" vote.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said this morning that "how it's done and what the form of it is being debated in the House". The whole of it.

'There was no consistent view across the evidence we heard as to which laws would be preserved and how they would be treated, ' it said.

"As the PM has said, we want to listen to parliament", the prime minister's spokesman said.

Solicitor general Robert Buckland said: "The Brexit process will in no way whatsoever be used to undermine or curtail the rights of workers that have been enshrined both in domestic law and in law by virtue of the European Union". "We are clear, though, on our determination to get the best possible outcome for the UK".

The Prime Minister responded: "My honourable friend is right, we will be leaving the European Union on the 29th March 2019".
