Former Universities Minister Says PM's Deal "Isn't A Deal"

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street London Britain

While lawmakers have voted for the advice to be published in full, Solicitor General Robert Buckland told the House of Commons on Friday that the government will provide just a "full and reasoned statement" on the legality of Brexit.

MPs may move against the Prime Minister tomorrow, with figures from the DUP, Labour, Liberal Democrats and SNP planning to send a letter to Commons speaker John Bercow insisting the full advice be published.

Next week's parliamentary vote on British Prime Minister Theresa May's deal will go ahead, Interior Minister Sajid Javid says, rejecting media speculation that the government might not go ahead with the vote because they could lose it.

Many within her ruling Conservative Party and the DUP have said they would oppose the deal while opposition parties have stated they would vote against it.

She will tell them that following meetings with a number of world leaders at the G20 meeting in Argentina, she believes the United Kingdom will be ready to strike ambitious trade deals post-Brexit.

May, who discussed trade with the leaders of Australia, Canada, Chile, Turkey and Japan on the sidelines of the summit, said she had heard from other leaders about the need for that certainty.

"This would be a collision course between the government and parliament", he added.

United Kingdom lawmakers are set to begin debating May's Brexit package this week, but the signs don't look promising for the prime minister.

The U.K.'s Fixed Term Parliaments Act stipulates that, after losing a confidence vote, parties would have two weeks to form another administration that can command a majority in the House of Commons.

Trump told reporters Friday the reason he wasn't meeting with the crown prince in Argentina was that his staff never set it up. He also pushed the issue of imprisoned human rights workers and the "humanitarian catastrophe" from violence in Yemen.

Next week's Brexit vote could be scrapped as the Prime Minister plans to seek more concessions from Brussels, it's been revealed.

Sir Keir told Sky News' Sophy Ridge On Sunday that Labour would seek to call a motion of no confidence in the government if MPs rejected the Brexit deal.

A group of Cabinet ministers are also said to be preparing to push for a Norway-style relationship with the European Union to avoid a disastrous no-deal.

The environment secretary warned a no deal Brexit would "cause hurt" and "turbulence".

"We shouldn't dismiss out of hand the idea of asking the people again what future they want, as we all now have a better understanding of the potential paths before us", Gyimah wrote.

Brexiteers have warned it could see the United Kingdom tied to European Union customs arrangements for years with no exit mechanism, while negotiations continue with Brussels on a trade deal.

Theresa May's Brexit deal sales tour continues apace with a stop today on the sofa of ITV's This Morning.

Starmer said Labour would accuse the government of being in contempt of Parliament if it does not release all of the attorney general's input.

Starmer also said that Labour would press for contempt proceedings against the government if May fails to produce the full legal advice she has received on her Brexit deal.
