Theresa May has said she will make a “bold offer” to MPs in a desperate bid to encourage them to vote for her Brexit deal.

The troubled Prime Minister needs support from across the House to pass her EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

Mrs May said in The Sunday Times she is asking MPs to vote on an “improved packaged of measures that can win new support” and she is not asking MPs to “think again on same deal”.

The new bill is expected to include new measures on protecting worker rights, which is an issue where the two main parties nearly agreed.

Mrs May said: “I still believe there is a majority in parliament to be won for leaving with a deal.

“When the Withdrawal Agreement Bill comes before MPs, it will represent a new, bold offer to MPs across the House of Commons, with an improved package of measures that I believe can win new support.”

MPs are due to vote on the bill at the beginning of June and if the bill fails to pass, the UK will leave the EU on October 31 without a deal.

Mrs May’s offer to MPs comes after Labour and Tory talks ended without a deal.
