Ministers to face MPs' questions about failure to strike Brexit deal

Ministers are to face MPs' questions about the failure to strike a Brexit deal following a DUP backlash.

The DUP, whose support the government needs in key votes, said it would not accept a deal on the Irish border which saw Northern Ireland treated differently from the rest of the UK.

The UK is seeking permission from Brussels to open trade talks.

Brexit Secretary David Davis is expected to respond to Labour's urgent question in the Commons at 12:30 GMT.
