She tells Radio 4 listeners there could be no deal with the EU without it

Prime Minister Theresa May on Radio 4’s Today programme today says she “is talking to colleagues” about their concerns over the Northern Ireland “backstop” ahead of a crucial vote on her EU deal.

She suggested MPs could be “given a role” in deciding whether to activate the backstop, which is designed to stop the return of a physical border.

But she told the BBC there could be no deal with the EU without it.
