No date has yet been announced when May will be heading to Brussels for talks on the Brexit deal.

In an article in the Sunday Telegraph, the Prime Minister said that she would be going to Brussels to with a "fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination" to stick to the agreed United Kingdom departure date on the 29th March.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, the prime minister said she would return to Brussels with a "fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination".

In the Sunday Times, the Irish deputy prime minister said the backstop is there for a good reason - to keep the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic open after Brexit.

The Mail said the plan would be to delay Brexit but win parliament's backing for a deal in April and then renew May's mandate ahead of negotiations on Britain's future relationship with the EU.

May said in her article: "When I return to Brussels, I will be battling for Britain and Northern Ireland".

May will be heading to Brussels following her victory in the House of Commons earlier when MPs, by a majority of 16, backed her European Union withdrawal deal providing she re-negotiates changes to the proposed arrangements over the Northern Ireland border issue. Fox told Sky News.

She also denied that "seeking alternative arrangements for the backstop constituted "ripping up the Good Friday Agreement".

He is the second senior minister to suggest such a delay may be needed, after Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Thursday Britain may need time to get legislation through.

On Monday, the House of Commons Brexit Committee is scheduled to visit Brussels to meet Martin Selmayr, the EU negotiator and Commission secretary-general, Sir Tim Barrow, the ambassador to the EU, and Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament Brexit coordinator.

But Maas rejected British calls for further concessions to be offered to make the deal, negotiated over two years, more palatable to its critics in London. She wrote that Now that "the British public wants us to get on and finish the job", and "the vast majority just want MPs to set out a clear plan that will get Brexit through Parliament and allow us to embark upon the next chapter of our national story". "It is in all our interests to get to that agreement and for the European Union to say we are not going to even discuss it seems to me to be quite irresponsible".

On a visit to Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday, he said: "I don't think any MP will sell their votes in that way - that sort of bribery and corruption".
