The Prime Minister, Theresa May, made a statement to the House of Commons updating MPs on EU exit negotiations.

The Prime Minister claimed "real progress" in Brexit negotiations but stated that the Government is still negotiating with the EU over their proposal for a "backstop to the backstop". She said that she continues to believe that a negotiated deal is the best outcome.

The Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, responded to the statement, telling the House that "this really is beginning to feel like groundhog day". He claimed that "over the last 18 months, red line after red line has been surrendered."
