Deadline on cross-party talks as May announces fresh vote on Brexit deal

The move places a deadline on cross-party talks with Labour, with Number 10 expressing a “determination” to bring them to an end.

The government will bring forward a key piece of Brexit legislation at the start of next month, Downing Street has said.

Number 10 said MPs will vote on the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which enshrines the prime minister’s Brexit plan into UK law, in the week beginning 3 June.

The announcement came following what Downing Street said were “useful and constructive” talks between Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
