May has been a messy a few days since the disclosure of a draft divorce trade with the European Union on Wednesday Last week, several ministers, including her Brexit minister, resigned and some of her own parliamentarians tried to abstain.
The British leader has promised to fight on Sunday warning which overthrew her risk of delaying Britain’s EU exit, and has said the future partnership agreement will help ensure that the government delivers at the 2016 Brexit vote.
The EU is holding a summit to discuss the deal on November 25th.
“We now have an intensive week of negotiations before us for the special European Council on Sunday,” May will say in a speech to the CBI Business Lobby Group’s annual conference on Monday, according to depression.
“During that time, I expect to hammer out the full and final details of the framework that will support our future relationship and I am convinced that we can meet an agreement in the Council that I can take back to the House of Commons. “
May will say the withdrawal agreement last week, strongly criticized by legislators on both sides of the EU debate, is a good deal for Britain.
At the same conference, opposition spokesman Jeremy Corbyn describes the deal as “a botched worst world business that is bad for Britain and leaves the country in an indefinite halfway house without a real word”.
Corbyn, who has said that his party does not support maize agreement when Parliament is asked to vote for it, says that the Brexit Work Plan would include a new comprehensive and permanent customs union and a “strong single market relationship”.
“The government is trying to force a bad deal that does not meet our country’s needs by threatening all of us with chaos and serious damage to our economy by no agreement,” he said. “The state minister knows that no agreement is a real alternative. Neither the cabinet nor the parliament would support such an extreme and dangerous course.”
May will also say that the agreement will allow Britain to control immigration, concern about which was an important driving force behind the Brexit vote.
“It will no longer be a citizen of Europe, regardless of the skills or experience they have to offer, can jump in front of engineers from Sydney or software developers from Delhi,” she says.
“We want an immigration system for the future that everyone can trust. Yes, a system that works for companies. One that allows us to attract the brightest and best from around the world, more streamlined application and redemption processes. . “
