Can UK Satisfy EU Backstop Concerns in Time of Brexit Pull Out?

However, her party has also confirmed that it will not push for a parliamentary vote on a second referendum this week even if the Brexit deal is resoundingly defeated.

British lawmakers, who on January 15 voted 432-202 against her deal, were on Tuesday studying the assurances with lawyers. The Bank of England has estimated that inflation could rise from around 2 per cent now to nearly 7 per cent within months of a disorderly "no-deal" Brexit. "Let s bring the United Kingdom s withdrawal to an orderly end", the former Luxembourg premier told reporters, sitting next to May at a late-night press conference in the French city. Because there will be no third chance.

Parliament rejected May's deal by 230 votes on January 15, prompting her to return to Brussels in search of changes to address the so-called Irish backstop - an insurance policy created to prevent the return of a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Lidington spoke before May and Juncker emerged from their talks. Many business leaders have spoken about the potentially disastrous consequences of a no-deal Brexit. Or, she added, Britain could leave without a deal to soften the shock, a nightmare scenario for many companies.

Another defeat in parliament could see Britain sever ties with its closest trading partner on March 29 with no new arrangements, causing huge disruption on both sides of the Channel.

Anti-Brexit remain in the European Union supporters, take part in a protest outside the House of Parliament in London, Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

The Telegraph said there was "a backdrop of exasperation" to the Prime Minister's trip to Brussels and that a deal will only succeed if there is "no doubt" that the backstop is temporary.

Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald said the vote showed the "absolute disregard for the people of Ireland, for our rights, our economy and the Good Friday Agreement that is at the heart of the Tory Brexit agenda".

The DUP, which props up may's minority government, said "sufficient progress has not been achieved" on the key issue of the Irish border.

"Is this incompetence or is this just contempt for parliament?" said opposition Labour MP Yvette Cooper.

Goods crossing the border from Ireland into Northern Ireland would not be covered by the new import tariff regime, posing a challenge for British authorities to stop importers from using Northern Ireland as a backdoor route to avoid British tariffs. This is the same deal they voted down overwhelmingly in January, and it's unclear whether anything has really changed between then and now.

Mrs May was suffering from a hoarse voice as she addressed the Commons following the loss, The Sun reports. Where Leave-supporting MPs had hoped a concrete deadline would be imposed on the backstop, the legal instrument only clarified the circumstances under which the backstop option could be triggered and, after its implementation, removed.

"If we leave without a deal, we will set the majority of our import tariffs to zero, whilst maintaining tariffs for the most sensitive industries", Trade Policy Minister George Hollingbery said.

"It is harder to leave the backstop than it is to leave the European Union", claimed Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, an influential Brexiteer.

Scrambling to plot an orderly path out of the Brexit maze just days before the United Kingdom is due to leave on March 29, May rushed to Strasbourg to agree additional assurances with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

If lawmakers vote down May's deal, she has promised a vote on Wednesday on whether to leave without a deal and, if they reject that, then a vote on whether to ask for a limited delay to Brexit.
