According to the UK daily, the Express, the UK PM Theresa May has been urged to back a new amendment by 1922 Committee Chair Sir Graham Brady in removing the Irish backstop from her Brexit deal.

Sir Brady said: “My amendment on January 29 demonstrates that a majority can be found for the Withdrawal Agreement, as long as the backstop cannot be a permanent state.”

“It is difficult to see how introducing a bill in exactly the same shape as the current Withdrawal Agreement could secure a majority, as it has already been rejected three times.”

“So I have urged the Government to build on the success of my amendment by incorporating the necessary reassurance about the backstop on the face of the bill.”
