Comments by UK PM spokesman, James Slack

  • Vote will take place on week of 14 January
  • Precise timing of vote depends on parliament
  • May working to get assurances parliament needs on Brexit deal
  • May has spoken to several European leaders over the holiday break
  • Process of getting assurances is still ongoing
  • Can expect May to meet with colleagues throughout the week

Slack is just basically summarising the entire situation surrounding Brexit right now. As reported by The Times and BBC, the meaningful vote on May's Brexit deal is likely to take place either on 15 or 16 January.

However, chances are she won't be able to get the much needed legal assurances on the backstop by then so we're likely headed towards a postponement of the vote (again) or a postponement of the Brexit date at this juncture.
