The vote due to take place on the Brexit deal in the British House of Commons tomorrow, has been delayed.

Despite repeated denials by senior ministers in the UK, as well as a Downing Street spokesperson, the British Prime Minister has delayed the so called 'meaningful vote' on the Brexit deal agreed with EU leaders.

Theresa May held a conference call with members of her cabinet to outline the position earlier this morning.

The vote was due to take place on Tuesday evening, with the UK Government facing a heavy defeat, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has hit out at Mrs. May's decision to postpone the vote:

Meanwhile, the European Court of Justice has ruled the UK is free to unilaterally revoke the notification of its intention to withdraw from the EU.

The current Brexit deal is the only one on the table according to the Tánaiste - Simon Coveney poured cold water on claims in the UK that another deal could be re-negotiated to weaken the backstop arrangement.
