Brexit agreement fails again, United Kingdom publishes 'no-deal' guidance

Brexit agreement fails again, United Kingdom publishes 'no-deal' guidance”

At a joint news conference, Ms.

"But if we ever have to use that insurance policy, it can not become a permanent arrangement and it is not the template for our future relationship", she added.

Urging the support of Conservative backbenchers, it said: "If today they still can not swallow their pride, hold their noses and back this deal, we fear the consequences".

On the eve of Tuesday's vote in London, Ms.

Several newspapers urged MPs to back the Prime Minister's Brexit deal on Tuesday after her trip to Brussels for last-minute negotiations.

Juncker believed "it is high time to complete the withdrawal process in line with the wishes expressed by the government of the United Kingdom and to move on as swiftly as possible to the negotiation of our future partnership".

"I have got to say that if you look at what the prime minister has said so far it seems to fall short of what she, herself, had promised".

The British government also published the text of the motion for Tuesday's vote.

The withdrawal agreement, materially identical to the document which lost a House of Commons vote by an historic majority of 230 in January, again failed to gain the approval of the British Parliament.

May's deal was rejected January 15 by a majority of 230 votes in the parliament, giving the prime minister the worst defeat for a sitting government for decades. However, the text of the 585-page withdrawal agreement remained unchanged.

Pro-Brexit U.K. lawmakers said they would read the fine print and wait for the judgment of Britain's Attorney General before deciding how to vote on March 12.

No Majority in British Parliament for Second Brexit Referendum: Reuters Analysis

If Parliament decides it does not want to leave without a plan then another vote will be held on Thursday to decide if the March 29 deadline for withdrawing from the European Union should be pushed back.

The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has travelled to Washington as part of his annual St Patrick's Day visit - and is expected to comment for the first time since the vote this afternoon. The value of the pound, which had risen last night after May declared she had reached a new deal with Juncker, fell sharply again after the publication of Cox's advice.

"We have an opportunity now to leave on March 29 or shortly thereafter and it's important we grasp that opportunity because there is wind in the sails of people trying to stop Brexit", Hunt told the BBC.

Announcing the breakthrough in Britain's House of Commons, Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington said lawmakers faced "a fundamental choice.to vote for the improved deal or to plunge this country into a political crisis".

British parliament will vote whether the country needs more time for an orderly exit. "Voting against leaving without a deal and for an extension does not solve the problems we face".

The border at the moment is invisible, and people, goods and services can travel through it freely.

Britain says it won't impose new checks and controls on goods that cross the land border between the Republic of Ireland and the U.K.'s Northern Ireland.

It was the first time that May had turned directly to the European Union, showing signs of frustration that talks to secure changes to the backstop this week had as yet produced no breakthrough. The mechanism, known as the backstop, is a safeguard that would keep the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU until a permanent new trading relationship is in place.

The joint UK-EU statement in the non-binding political declaration commits both sides to develop new technologies at the border to replace the need for the backstop by December 2020.
