THERESA May will hold a new exit deal vote in early June, giving MPs another chance to vote on Brexit.

This means that it will be the fourth time that the House of Commons votes on Theresa May’s Brexit deal, having been rejected in all prior votes.

According a Downing Street spokesman, the new vote was announced during a gathering between Jeremy Corbyn and the Prime Minister.

The vote is due to take place during the first week of June before MPs’ summer recess.

The spokesman said: “This evening the Prime Minister met the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons to make clear our determination to bring the talks to a conclusion and deliver on the referendum result to leave the EU,”

“We will therefore be bringing forward the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in the week beginning the 3rd June,” he added, noting that official talks are ongoing.

“It is imperative we do so then if the UK is to leave the EU before the summer Parliamentary recess.”
