DUP to vote against Theresa May's early holiday plan for MPs

DUP to vote against Theresa May's early holiday plan for MPs”

One of the amendments practically says that the United Kingdom should not be collecting tariffs for Brussels unless the European Union does the same for Britain, one of the key ideas in May's original Brexit white paper that was created to keep the Irish border invisible.

In his first Commons speech since resigning from the government, the former Brexit secretary David Davis said the government would never allow a hard border.

The customs bill (officially known as the Brexit-linked Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill) cleared the Commons after MPs gave it a third reading by 318 votes to 285 - majority 33.

Parliament could also consider a government attempt to bring forward its summer break to Thursday from next week, which the government says is logical because there is very little parliamentary business in the remaining days.

During the debate on the Trade Bill, a minister tried to persuade Mr Hammond and his supporters to back down, promising to deal with the "essence" of their concerns when the bill goes to the House of Lords.

May's plan has drawn criticism from members of her party as well as pro-Brexit members.

Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May, leaves the BBC after appearing on the Andrew Marr Show, in central London, Britain July 15, 2018.

"This could lead to a damaging and disorderly Brexit", she wrote.

Any vote on moving the break would take place on Wednesday.

May defended her plan as she opened the Farnborough International Airshow.

Around 40 Tory MPs have reportedly already submitted a letter to the party leadership calling for a vote of no confidence.

Pro-EU MPs have accused Mrs May of being beholden to Jacob Rees-Mogg, whose ERG forced her to make concessions on tariff arrangements with the EU.

She said that would remove Britain's ability to have an independent trade policy and her government "will never stand for that".

The most talked-about of the four amendments proposes to make it illegal for the British taxman to collect duties for the European Union without reciprocal arrangements, after May proposed that the United Kingdom would collect tariffs on goods heading for the EU after Brexit.

Brexiteers believe their amendments will make the Prime Minister's plan unacceptable to the European Union, which insists that the "backstop" proposal to avoid a hard border in Ireland remains available.

The skirmishes are expected to continue Tuesday when a trade bill is debated.
