Theresa May is yet again battling to get her Brexit deal passed by the Commons today.

Voting is expected at about 2.30pm. What time will the deal be debated? MPs will start debating it in the Commons from about 9.30am. Why has it not been labelled as a third “meaningful vote”?

This means it complies with rules laid down by Commons speaker John Bercow, who said the same deal previously rejected earlier this month and in January could not be brought back to Parliament.

EU leaders turned the screw on Theresa May at their March summit by refusing her request for a three-month Brexit extension and giving her just three weeks to find a way forward. With the Prime Minister announcing on Monday there is insufficient support to put her deal to Parliament for a third time the May 22 extension offered by the EU looks unlikely to come into play. The UK has until April 12 to ask the EU for a new extension, but Brussels could refuse if the UK has not provided clear evidence of new thinking and a way out of the current logjam.

But Eurosceptics signalled they could now swing reluctantly behind Mrs May's deal, with influential backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg saying "the choice seems to be Mrs May's deal or no Brexit". The chairman of the European Research Group of Tory Eurosceptic MPs, said … [Read more...] about Theresa May considers third vote on Brexit deal this week as Rees-Mogg indicates reluctant support
