Do not hijack Brexit, minister warns Britain's parliament

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Parliament cannot be allowed to hijack Brexit, Trade Minister Liam Fox said on Sunday (January 20), in a warning to lawmakers who want to take more control over Britain's departure from the European Union.

Fox, a Brexit supporter, told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that May's divorce agreement with the EU was still the best basis for a deal and warned lawmakers against trying to take more control of Britain's departure.

With just weeks to go before Britain is due to leave the EU, Prime Minister Theresa May will return to parliament on Monday (January 21) to set out how she plans to try to break the Brexit deadlock after her deal was rejected by lawmakers last week.

She will also speak to ministers on Sunday (January 20) on a conference call, a government source said, as the prime minister tries to navigate a way through the competing visions for the future from a second referendum to staying in the EU.

Britain's main opposition Labour Party is pressing for a new election and for May to rule out the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, while others in parliament are lobbying for anything from a second referendum to leaving without an agreement.

Also appearing on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said that the only viable options were for Britain to move forward to maintain a close relationship with the EU or to hold a public vote.

He also said that he was open to an extension of Article 50 if that meant Britain avoided leaving the EU without a deal.
