Title: Brexit: EU says no to May on renegotiating deal
Authors: Bhuiyan, H
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: European Union leaders have said the Brexit withdrawal agreement is "not open for renegotiation", after appeals from Theresa May. She wants legal assurances on the Irish backstop to help her deal get through Parliament, after she delayed a Commons vote in anticipation of defeat. The PM said the deal was "at risk" if MPs' concerns could not be addressed. European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said there could be clarifications but no renegotiation. He urged the UK to set out more clearly what it wants, adding that the commission will publish information on 19 December on its preparations for a no-deal Brexit. Mrs May travelled to Brussels to make a special plea to EU leaders at Thursday's summit, but BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said it appeared that the meeting went badly and EU leaders seemed not to believe she had the political ability to get the deal through the Commons.
