On the prospects of reaching a deal, the prime minister added: "It'll mean compromise on both sides".

Labour favours a softer Brexit than the government has proposed, including a close economic relationship with the bloc through a customs union.

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson has previously called for a Chilcot-style public inquiry into the handling of Brexit.

The UK has passed legislation permitting members of Parliament to make, during the debate on it on Tuesday, legally binding alterations to PM Theresa May's request to the European Union for a delay until June 30 of its Brexit departure date.

May heads to Berlin and Paris on Tuesday to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron and will be phoning other leaders before setting out the case for another delay at Wednesday's emergency European Union summit in Brussels.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May defending her position on Brexit, and her decision to hold cross-party talks with opposition Labour Party, in a video message filmed at her Chequers country retreat on April 7, 2019.

Mrs May acknowledged that she could not see the Commons accepting her deal in its current form and MPs would not agree to a no-deal exit - now the default position at 11pm on Friday unless an extension is granted.

'We are prepared to talk and put forward our view, but talks have to mean a movement and so far there has been no change in those red lines'.

They'll come with a wireless charging case akin to the one just released with Apple's second-generation AirPods. It's unclear when Amazon will announce the new buds, but sometime around August or September sounds reasonable.

"There's a lot of things on which I disagree with the Labour Party on policy issues but on Brexit I think there are some things we agree we're talking".

Mr Wright backed Mrs May and called for compromise in Brexit talks between Labour and the Government so the United Kingdom could leave the European Union "on the best possible terms". "For me, whatever we deliver, it has to be Brexit", she told the BBC. I think that the challenge of Brexit to our political system is a profound one.

The Labour MP resisted calling for it to take place until it is all finished, but questioned whether or not Britain's consistution is still fit for goal because it did not appear to be holding the prime minister to account.

"We haven't found that yet", Starmer said of finding a way forward. He said an agenda had been circulated that included the idea of a confirmatory referendum.

"We've got to look at the offer on the table at the moment and what we're looking at is Theresa May's deal or no deal".

Johnson said: "It would mean Slovakia or Lithuania - to say nothing of France or Germany - would have more say over United Kingdom trade policy than London".

An extension requires unanimous approval from the 27 remaining national leaders, some of whom are fed up with Brexit uncertainty and reluctant to prolong it further.

Mr Corbyn said: 'The exchanges with the Government have been serious, but our shadow cabinet expressed frustration that the Prime Minister has not yet moved off her red lines so we can reach a compromise.
