Senior Tories tell May to steer clear of Brexit negotiations with Labour

She told Mr Corbyn: "It is good to see that we agree that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union with a deal and that the urgent task at hand is to find a deal that honours our commitments to the people of Northern Ireland, can command support in Parliament and can be negotiated with the EU - not to seek an election or second referendum". I think that some of the ideas that the prime minister has mentioned in the House of Commons do seem sensible.
Mr Barclay will later travel to Brussels for talks over dinner with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier.
Labour MP Lisa Nandy told the BBC's Politics Live that there were between 40 and 60 of her colleagues "who are actively looking for ways to support" a revised Brexit deal. The intervention came as the PM (pictured left returning to No10 today) moved to quell Tory fears that she is about to cave into Jeremy Corbyn's (pictured right) demand for a permanent customs union with the EU.
In her letter May argued that her own Brexit plan "explicitly provides for the benefits of a customs union" in terms of avoiding tariffs, while allowing "development of the UK's independent trade policy beyond our economic partnership with the EU".
"I don't see that in the letter", he said.
This is despite Mr Corbyn repeatedly saying there should be a general election if Mrs May can not get a deal through Parliament.
Based on a referendum in 2016, Britain will leave the European Union on March 29. Downing Street said that would give Parliament a few days to consider her remarks.
But she said the Government is prepared to commit to asking Parliament if it wishes to follow suit if standards change.
Lawmakers may be unnerved by the latest round of financial data, which showed Monday that Britain's economy slowed previous year to its weakest growth rate since the global financial crisis.
In the fourth quarter, British business investment fell 1.4 percent for the fourth straight quarterly decline - the first time that has happened since the 2008 financial crisis.
But in the case of a "no-deal" Brexit, those agreements will no longer apply to Swiss-British relations, and the new bilateral trade agreement between the two countries will kick in.
Labour will use a vote on Thursday to attempt to force Mrs May to bring her Brexit deal back to the Commons for a showdown by February 26 to prevent her "running down the clock" to the UK's scheduled departure date of March 29.
We need to break the Brexit deadlock.
"There is no doubt that our economy is being overshadowed by the uncertainty created by the Brexit process", he told Sky News.
