The PM insists she remains determined to secure legally-binding changes to her deal:
Theresa May will tell the EU it “has to make a choice” on Brexit as she continues a last-ditch effort to win concessions over her withdrawal agreement.
The prime minister will use a speech on Friday to insist she remains determined to secure legally-binding changes to the Brexit backstop.
In a message directed at Brussels, Mrs May will say it is in the interests of the EU to agree to alterations with just days left until the House of Commons votes again on her exit deal.
In a speech in Leave-supporting Grimsby, Lincolnshire, the prime minister is expected to say: “Just as MPs will face a big choice next week, the EU has to make a choice too.
“We are both participants in this process. It is in the European interest for the UK to leave with a deal.
“We are working with them but the decisions that the EU makes over the next few days will have a big impact on the outcome of the vote.”
