BRITAIN’S Prime Minister is set to present her revamped Brexit offer to lawmakers in Westminster today (Wednesday May 22) which includes a parliamentary vote on holding a second referendum.
Theresa May’s pitch to MPs comes as some from both the leave and remain side said they would not back it.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said May’s offer was ‘too week’ while former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said it broke Conservative manifesto promises.
It comes as May said ahead of today’s Parliamentary appearance that she would make a ‘bold’ new offer to MPs.
Environmental Secretary and pro-Brexit MP Michael Gove said other lawmakers should take a step back to ‘reflect’ on the offer in a defence of May’s plan.
May is set to bring her deal back to the House of Commons for a fourth and likely final time in June, according to government sources.
Her draft Withdrawal Bill is also set to feature guarantees on protecting worker’s rights and the environment in a bid to win over moderate Labour MPs.
