Historic 'meaningful vote' on Brexit deal to take place on December 11

"A deal that delivers for the British people".

Speaking in the House of Commons, May said she did not pretend that either Britain or the European Union are entirely happy with the arrangements.

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Commons would have "very little choice" but to reject Mrs May's "botched" deal, which he described as "bad for this country".

"I don't think they meant that".

Former defence secretary Sir Michael Fallon confirmed he will not vote in favour of the agreement when it comes to Parliament, where he said it seems "doomed" to fail.

During a visit to the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Builth Wells in Powys, Mrs May said: "Of course I am going to be debating in the House of Commons with all parties on the issue of the Brexit deal". "We can back this deal, deliver on the vote of the referendum and move on to building a brighter future of opportunity and prosperity for all our people".

'You have to be clear about what your vital interests are and that includes protecting the interests of the people of Northern Ireland.' Her ten MPs, who prop up Mrs May's minority government, have pledged to vote against a deal they say threatens to split Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK. Or this House can choose to reject this deal and go back to square one.

"No one knows what would happen if this deal doesn't pass. It would open the door to more division and more uncertainty, with all the risks that will entail".

"I am willing to stand up and explain why I think it is the best possible deal available for the United Kingdom".

"This is not a good deal and we need a better deal".

Mrs May was braced for a further backlash from Tory Eurosceptics today when the Treasury publishes an economic analysis of the potential costs and benefits of Mrs May's Brexit deal in comparision with staying in the European Union or leaving without a deal.

She sent a message to residents of the Rock: "We will always stand by you".

The Department for Exiting the European Union said it does not comment on leaks.

The government has only said it will publish a "full reasoned position statement" laying its out political and legal position on the withdrawal agreement.

He said: "It's no use us just brushing that off, saying "No, no, we can do a deal with America"; he's the President of the United States, and if he says it's going to be hard, then it certainly looks like it's going to be hard".

The PM told her Cabinet at a meeting on Monday morning that Sunday's agreement was "a significant moment" which had proved wrong those who said it would not be possible to reach a deal.

She will then travel to Scotland for another day of campaigning on Wednesday as she appeals over the heads of MPs to ordinary voters to support her plan.

Downing Street has said the Treasury's papers will cover a "range of scenarios".

Prime Minister Theresa May made a blunt appeal to skeptical lawmakers on Monday to back her divorce deal with the European Union: It isn't ideal, but it's all there is, and the alternative is a leap into the unknown.

The Financial Conduct Authority, Britain's financial markets regulator, will publish its own Brexit impact report at 1630 GMT tomorrow too.

The Prime Minister will visit Scotland today as part of a tour of the United Kingdom to sell her plans to the people, but the deal looks increasingly likely to be rejected in the Commons.
