The Government has promised to share its assessment of readiness for a no deal Brexit with MPs. This is an important opportunity to investigate what such an outcome would really mean, says Tim Durrant.
The Prime Minister has now replied to Jeremy Corbyn’s letter. Jill Rutter thinks it is surprisingly warm in tone – and honest about the negotiating challenge ahead – but notes that Corbyn is not the only audience.
While the media were focused on the fallout of Donald Tusk’s undiplomatic language, Jeremy Corbyn was penning a letter to the Prime Minister. That, argues Jill Rutter, was the more significant development yesterday.
Parliament is trying to take greater control of the Brexit process. To do this MPs are searching for ways to have more say over the control of parliamentary business—something that largely rests with the Government. But, says Dr Alice Lilly, these proposals really reflect broader concern over who controls the Order Paper.
