The UK will set out additional proposals for Northern Ireland and giving parliament a bigger role as the government seeks more assurances from the European Union on her Brexit deal, Prime Minister Theresa May said today.
“I’ve been speaking to European leaders in the intervening period, speaking to colleagues. I’ll be continuing with that,” May said, adding: “In the coming days, what we’ll set out is not just about the EU but also about what we can do domestically.
“We will be setting out measures which will be specific to Northern Ireland, we’ll be setting out proposals for a greater role for parliament … and we are continuing to work on further assurances, further undertakings from the European Union in relation to the concern that has been expressed by parliamentarians.”
May’s comments come as more than 200 MPs have urged the PM to rule out crashing out of the EU without an agreement.
