Theresa May has said MPs have "one last chance" to deliver Brexit, urging them to back what she said was a "new deal".

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

MPs will get a vote on whether to hold another referendum if they back the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, she said.

The bill also contains new guarantees on workers' rights, environmental protections and the Northern Irish border as well a customs "compromise".

Labour said it was a "rehash" of existing plans and Tory Brexiteers took to social media to vent their anger.

Jacob Rees-Mogg said what was on offer was "worse than before", while Zac Goldsmith said the bill was a "convoluted mess" and the prime minister - who has offered to quit once a Brexit agreement is approved by Parliament - should leave now.

MPs have rejected the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU three times.

In what is seen as a last roll of the dice, Mrs May is now bringing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - legislation required to bring the agreement into UK law - to Parliament in early June.
