Theresa May Promises U.K. Lawmakers Brexit Vote by February 27

Mrs May sparked the furore by penning a letter to Mr Corbyn (pictured inset bottom) saying his call for the United Kingdom to stay in a customs union would hamper free trade deals - but stopped short of ruling it out.

"It's clear that Jeremy Corbyn. he's done a complete U-turn", Mr Johnson told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

On the Northern Ireland backstop, Mr Johnson said: "The argument is now about how to get out of the backstop". Foremost was a demand that May seek a "permanent and comprehensive UK-wide customs union".

"On your point about the deadline and could we have a time limit, I think it must be pretty obvious that if you are going to have a time limit to the backstop and I think that would be a very good thing". During his speech, Mr Johnson said: "I don't think there is any mileage for Theresa May or the Government in trying to a do a deal with Labour".

Jeremy Corbyn said he believes Theresa May might try to run out of the clock on a Brexit deal.

She insisted her deal already met numerous conditions he had set.

But No 10 said it rejected any proposals to remain in a customs union with the EU.

Mrs May does not agree, and wrote: "I am not clear why you believe it would be preferable to seek a say in future European Union trade deals rather than the ability to strike our own deals?"

Although Britain's Treasury chief Philip Hammond argued the British economy remains "fundamentally strong" and is "enjoying the longest unbroken quarterly growth streak" among the Group of Seven industrialised countries, he conceded that Brexit unease was taking its toll.

Theresa May has responded to Jeremy Corbyn's letter setting out his five demands for a Brexit deal.

The Prime Minister has previously ruled out a customs union, which would restrict the UK's ability to strike trade deals, and could face Cabinet resignations if she changed her position.

"I absolutely do not think that should be our policy", she told Sky News on Sunday.

She did not reject any of his conditions outright in her reply.

Downing Street meanwhile said Mrs May will make a Commons statement on the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations on Tuesday - a day earlier than expected.

Last month, the Parliament approved an amendment that supported most of the deal but called for backstop - a last-resort option to prevent a hard border in Ireland to be replaced with "alternative arrangements".

There appears little prospect of an imminent breakthrough with Brussels, and Mrs May might not bring her deal back for a decisive vote this month.

Housing secretary James Brokenshire it would be allowing her more time to come up with a compromise.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on 29 March but has yet to find a deal which is acceptable to both Brussels and lawmakers at home, raising the prospect of a disorderly exit that could damage the world's fifth largest economy.
