Brokenshire: No Deal Preparations Continuing ‘At Pace’

“The Chancellor announced an extra £500 million in the Budget a few weeks ago, which takes our total commitment to no deal preparations since 2016 up to £4 billion, 106 technical notices that have already been published, and therefore how we will continue in parallel to continue that no deal preparations are maintained.”

According to Morris, all it takes is for those Members who have handed in their letters to say that they can be used, and a contest begins.

“My belief… is that we do have the 48, and what depends on whether or not they can be used is whether or not those Members who have put them in give him the go ahead. He has them, but subject to [approval].”

Morris seems very confident in her assumption. Only time will tell…

Jacob Rees-Mogg has called it a “failure of the Government’s negotiating position and a failure to deliver on Brexit”. The DUP have warned May that there will be “consequences” if she does not keep her Brexit promises to them, with Sammy Wilson stressing that their confidence and supply deal is with the Conservative Party, not May herself. May is going to have some job getting this through Parliament…
