Brexit deal - Theresa May takes agreement to parliament

Politics A- A A+

Yesterday, Theresa May held a five-hour cabinet meeting to discuss the draft of the withdrawal agreement that has been negotiated with the EU.

She emerged somewhat victorious, announcing they had reached a “collective” decision to press ahead with finalizing the deal in Brussels, but it was clear there had been significant dissent.

There are some key questions today, including whether any cabinet ministers will resign – reports say Esther McVey is on “resignation watch” – and whether the agreement will get the required support in parliament. May is due to speak to the House of Commons later today, and we’ll obviously be bringing you news of that as it happens.
