Prime Minister Theresa May is set to ask for support from Jeremy Corbyn in delivering Brexit and getting through legislation. 

On Tuesday, May will make a direct appeal for opposition parties to contribute to the UK's Brexit policy, rather than criticise it, as well as help to make improvements to policies in the Commons.

May’s leadership is at a current weak point after a failure to secure a majority in the recent election.

Despite this, she plans to remain firm on her position on Brexit.

The Telegraph has released a quote from May emphasising the importance to “make the case for our policies and our values, and to win the battle of ideas both in Parliament as well as in the country.”

She goes on to address the opposing parties directly: “So I say to the other parties in the House of Commons... come forward with your own views and ideas about how we can tackle these challenges as a country.We may not agree on everything, but through debate and discussion—the hallmarks of our Parliamentary democracy—ideas can be clarified and improved and a better way forward found.”

This plea for support from May comes at the same time as Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the SNP and the Greens are preparing to reveal plans to derail any plans for Brexit by tabling amendments to the Repeal Bill.They may also make use of secondary legislation—Henry VIII clauses—which would allow the government to make changes to legislation without full parliamentary scrutiny.

They may also make use of secondary legislation, also known as Henry VIII clauses, which would allow the government to make changes to legislation without full parliamentary scrutiny.

Her coming speech will reportedly address the concerns that she is leading a government lacking the majority to go through with policies and deliver Brexit.

May continued to say: “My commitment to change in Britain is undimmed; my belief in the potential of the British people and what we can achieve together as a nation remains steadfast; and the determination I have to get to grips with the challenges posed by a changing world never more sure.”
