Commons Debating Johnson's Brexit Deal

MPs in London are debating Boris Johnson's last-ditch Brexit deal.

If every MP votes, he needs the backing of 320 of them.

During his opening speech, Boris Johnson said this is the last chance for a deal to be done.

In response, Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said his party could not support the deal because it is 'even worse than the one the House rejected three times'.

He added that the deal on the table would cost each British taxpayer £2,000 per year.

Deputy leader of the Democratic Unionist leader, Nigel Dodds, said his party cannot support the deal because it effectively breaks the Union.

Nigel Dodds said 'we must leave as one nation together'.  He also 'there may be special circumstances for Northern Ireland but that is only with the consent of the people of the region, unionist and nationalist'.

The debate is likely to continue into the late afternoon.
