Brexit: UK MPs push to prevent no-deal in law

The Cabinet is scheduled to meet for five hours Tuesday amid calls for compromise to prevent a potentially devastating no-deal exit in just 10 days.

"However, if we cannot agree on the single unified approach, then we would instead agree a number of options for the future relationship that we could put to the House in a series of votes to determine which course to pursue".

Though there has been no official response from the European Council, a tweet from its president, Donald Tusk, suggested that they would be receptive to an extension.

Mrs May said that if she could not agree a unified approach with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn then the government would agree a number of options on the future relationship with the European Union and put them before the House of Commons in a series of votes.

In the latest round of indicative votes on Monday, MPs voted on four alternatives to the PM's withdrawal deal, but none gained a majority.

A no-deal Brexit was "never our desired or intended scenario" but "becomes day after day more likely", he said.

Despite the difficulties of a chaotic exit, "the European Union will be able to manage", Barnier said, although he warned that "not everything will be smooth".

Michel Barnier said a long extension to the UK's 12 April exit date had "significant risks for the EU" and a "strong justification would be needed".

French President Emmanuel Macron warned that an extension to the Article 50 negotiation process can not be taken for granted, and that the United Kingdom would have to present a "credible alternative plan backed by a majority" at next week's summit in order to secure it.

The MPs did not give a timetable for the legislation, but are due to take control of parliamentary time on Wednesday, when they could either debate the legislation or set out when they intend to try and pass the bill.

Mr Bradshaw said the "only way" to move forward with Brexit was to allow a public vote on the deal, despite its 12-vote defeat.

Cooper said: "We are now in a really risky situation with a serious and growing risk of No Deal in 10 days' time". The Prime Minister has a responsibility to prevent that happening. This is not the first time Cooper or her conspirators tried to stop a proper, no deal Brexit, with Cooper, Letwin, and former Conservative MP Nick Boles threatening a government shutdown by presenting amendments to a finance bill which meant to stop the Treasury spending money on no deal arrangements. "But it is definitely worth trying".
