Brexit: Key MPs’ vote ‘is going ahead’ as critics urge renegotiation

Brexit vote will not be delayed, say ministers, as critics urge the PM to renegotiate with the EU.

The Commons vote on Tuesday will not be delayed, the Brexit Secretary has said, amid growing calls for the PM to go back to Brussels to renegotiate.

Stephen Barclay also said Theresa May could stay in post if, as expected, MPs reject her Brexit plan.

The PM has warned Tory rebels it could lead to a general election, and there was a “very real risk of no Brexit”.

Boris Johnson said the PM could stay on if she lost but must renegotiate the deal with Brussels.

The withdrawal deal negotiated between the UK and EU has been endorsed by EU leaders but must also be backed by Parliament.
