The Government is trying to thrash out a deal.

PARLIAMENT will not be able to stop Brexit even if the UK fails to get a deal with the EU, a minister has declared.

EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier wants any withdrawal deal finalised by October 2018 and the Government has committed to hold a vote in Parliament as soon as possible after the negotiations have concluded.

But Brexit minister Steve Baker told a Lords committee that, if the UK has not reached agreement with the bloc by that time, MPs would not get a vote.

He told this morning’s meeting the UK hoped and expected to get an agreement but would not commit to a Bill or parliamentary motion on leaving in March 2019 if they failed.
