Brexit: MPs to vote on Theresa May's deal

MPs will vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal later after she secured "legally binding" changes to it following last-ditch talks with the EU in Strasbourg.The PM said the changes meant the Irish backstop - the insurance policy designed to avoid a hard border in Ireland - could not "become permanent".But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the changes were not "anything approaching" what she had promised.It remains to be seen whether MPs will vote for the deal on Tuesday evening.The legal view of the changes taken by Attorney General Geoffrey Cox is likely to be an important factor in the lead-up to the Commons vote.
