Government publishes Brexit legal advice in full

The chair of the 1922 Committee had earlier praised the PM's efforts in getting the Withdrawal Agreement drafted.

"It's clear that there are those in the House of Commons who want to frustrate Brexit. and overturn the vote of the British people and that's not right".

"Now, there are pros and cons of both sides of that".

According to BuzzFeed, Downing Street advisers have urged Theresa May to consider a second referendum or a softer Brexit as options, as her team work out the best response to her deal being rejected.

"People have a concern of the backstop, that we could be in it indefinitely".

Bob has previously said he will support the Prime Minister's deal to secure Brexit. "And the national interest is making sure that we deliver on that vote".

May has repeatedly said if lawmakers reject her deal with Brussels, which would see Britain exit the European Union on March 29 with continued close ties, the only alternatives are leaving without a deal or reversing Brexit.

In legal advice the government was forced to publish on Wednesday, the government's top lawyer warned there was a risk Britain could get stuck in "protracted and repeating rounds of negotiations" to reach a deal to supersede the backstop.

The prime minister's DUP allies - along with Tory MPs Philip Hollobone and Peter Bone - joined opposition parties in the unprecedented move.

World's first baby born via womb transplant from dead donor
Upon encountering a suitable candidate and donor, doctors must act quickly to remove the uterus and transport it to the patient. The current norm for receiving a womb transplant is that the organ would come from a live family member willing to donate it.

Supporters of a clean break with the European Union say the backstop, meant to ensure no hard border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the EU-member Irish Republic, could leave Britain forced to accept European Union regulations indefinitely, or Northern Ireland treated differently from the rest of Britain.

Ministers are expected to set out today how this will be done.

The Newbury MP voted in favour of an amendment which will hand power to MPs if Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal agreement is rejected. The House of Commons leader, Andrea Leadsom, also told parliament the vote would go ahead on December 11.

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the finding of contempt was "a badge of shame" for the government, with "huge constitutional and political significance".

"The prime minister can't keep pushing Parliament away or avoiding responsible scrutiny".

She said those backing a second referendum wanted the public to give a different message.

Mrs May indicated on Thursday she had no intention of putting off the vote as it emerged she would need the agreement of MPs to stop it from going ahead. Within moments, Sir Keir Starmer, shadow Brexit secretary, took to Twitter, arguing the advice revealed "central weaknesses" in the United Kingdom government's Brexit deal.

The government had refused previous requests to publish the advice, which comes just a week before MPs vote on the deal itself, saying it would set a risky precedent if the Attorney General could not provide the Prime Minister with honest, confidential legal advice without fear of it being made public.

Under the arrangements, "for regulatory purposes, GB is essentially treated as a third country by NI for goods passing from GB into NI", he said.
