British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to update MPs tomorrow about recent Brexit talks as she continues to seek support for her deal.

She visited Dublin and Brussels last week seeking EU agreement on changes to the backstop the insurance policy to avoid the return of visible Northern Ireland border checks. Last month MPs who will debate Brexit on Thursday voted for the PM to find alternatives to the current backstop. But the EU says it will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.

However, efforts to come up with a solution acceptable to both sides continue. Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay will meet with a group of MPs working on possible alternatives to the backstop later, before heading to Strasbourg to hold talks with EU negotiator Michel Barnier as the EU and UK Brexit negotiating teams discuss proposed changes to the deal.
