Britain's opposition Labour Party, in conjunction with Conservative rebels, is planning to try to seize control this week of Brexit negotiations by forcing Prime Minister Theresa May to bring her previously rejected Brexit deal to yet another vote in the House of Commons before the end of the month.

The Prime Minister is expected to ask MPs to give her more time to secure changes to her Brexit deal, as well as promising them another say on her plans, in a bid to placate ministers anxious about a no-deal exit.

"This new agreement lays the foundations for the two parties to continue their sound economic and trade relations once the United Kingdom has left the European Union", the Swiss government said in a statement. We've now got a response from the prime minister. However, it has not yet been approved by United Kingdom lawmakers, prompting fears of a no-deal Brexit both in Brussels and in London.

His remarks to reporters came after talks with EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.

The existing Political Declaration - the part of the Brexit deal setting out the goals for the future UK-EU relationship - "explicitly provides for the benefits of a customs union - no tariffs, fees, charges or quantitative restrictions across all sectors and no checks on rules of origin", said the PM.

Prime Minister Theresa May is to give a statement to Parliament on Tuesday on the latest developments in Brexit talks, Downing Street announced.

In a letter to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn dated Sunday, May opposed his party's appeal for the country to remain in a customs union with Brussels.

But Labour's shadow Brexit secretary, Sir Keir Starmer, says he believes the prime minister is "pretending to make progress" on this issue.

Angus MacNeil, chairman of the Commons worldwide trade committee, said the admission by officials about new trade deals not being ready in time for Brexit was "what has been suspected for some time".

The Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade, The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, signed the UK-Switzerland agreement in Bern today (Monday 11th February) with Swiss Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin.

Meanwhile, the head of the International Monetary Fund on Sunday warned that the British exit from the European Union means it "will never be as good as it is now" for the country's economy.

"I'm certain of one thing, is that it's not going to be as good as if they had not been Brexit, that is for sure", Lagarde said. They suggested it was now time for Jeremy Corbyn to do so.

They have also signed a deal to preserve the rights of some 43,000 British nationals living in Switzerland and the 35,000 Swiss living in Britain after Brexit.
