it is “inevitable” Labour will table a motion of no confidence in the government if Theresa May’s Brexit deal is voted down in the Commons.

The remarks from the shadow Brexit secretary come as the prime minister faces an intense week to persuade MPs to back her deal at a crucial vote in the chamber in just nine days’ time.

Labour’s plan to seek a no confidence motion was first revealed by The Independent in September as party strategists began planning their approach in the event of a deal failing to receive MPs’ ratification.

It is now widely expected that Ms May’s deal will be voted down, as the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), who prop up the government, have already vowed to oppose the agreement, alongside dozens of Conservative MPs.
