PM May is seeking significant changes to Brexit divorce deal

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she is seeking to renegotiate the Brexit divorce deal agreed with the European Union to secure "significant" changes although this is likely to face strong resistance from the bloc.

"What I am talking about is not a further exchange of letters but a significant and legally binding change to the withdrawal agreement," May told parliament on Tuesday (January 29).

"Negotiating such a change will not be easy.

It will involve reopening the withdrawal agreement, a move for which I know there is limited appetite among our European partners." The EU has repeatedly said it will not change the legal text agreed with the UK government.

May will face a number of votes on Tuesday evening (January 29) over the potential future outcomes of the UK's divorce from the EU.
