UK: Theresa May to bring Brexit deal back to lawmakers in June

"We will therefore be bringing forward the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in the week beginning the 3rd June", he added, noting that official talks are ongoing.

"I can not see how an agreement that has been rejected three times by Parliament would not be rejected a fourth time", Mr Bone told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer.

By restarting the process to get parliamentary approval for a deal she agreed with the European Union in November, May is also trying to signal to her own party that she will honor her promise to step down as leader when the agreement is passed.

The plan was announced during a meeting between the UK Prime Minister and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, according to a Downing Street spokesman.

After a marathon Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, ministers agreed to continue the cross-party efforts but stressed it was "imperative" for a Brexit deal to get through Parliament by the summer recess.

Also the PM could well take the bold step of running a "definitive votes" process as soon as next week to find a cross-party consensus on the UK's future relationship with the EU.

The Prime Minister has been engaged in cross-party talks with Jeremy Corbyn since she asked for the latest deadline delay until October 31.

No date has been set for the summer recess, but Parliament usually rises near the end of July.

The letter, organised by Greg Hands, said Mrs May could not bind her successor to a deal so any agreement with Labour was likely to be "at best temporary, at worst illusory".

"In particular he raised doubts over the credibility of government commitments, following statements by Conservative MPs (members of parliament) and cabinet ministers seeking to replace the prime minister", his spokesman said.

"Both of us will be crucified by our base if we went into a general election having promised that we would respect the referendum result, not having respected it", he said.

But Mr Bone said unless there were substantial changes to the Irish backstop within the Withdrawal Agreement, it would not be backed by MPs.

The government calculates that if a majority of lawmakers can be persuaded to approve the Brexit terms bill, they will then back the deal as well.

The Prime Minister was warned by senior Conservatives that she risks losing the "loyal middle" of the Tory party if she gives ground on the issue. "Not unless she comes to a deal with us and frankly, the signs are not good".

Can't wait to see what happens in the UK's Brexit saga?

Dominic Raab, the UK's Brexit secretary, who was nominally the chief British negotiator for the deal now on the table said on Thursday: " I can not in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the European Union".
