May turns to trade unions in plea for Brexit backing

Political Editor

Theresa  May has called Trade Union leaders today as she hunts for enough votes to get her Brexit deal through the Commons.

The Government has also met Labour MPs to find out if they would back the deal if there were more pledges on workers’ rights.

But the Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party won’t support the deal and that if the Government loses the vote, there should be a General Election.
