that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening. theresa may is facing growing calls from within her own party and the opposition to change course in the final stages of negotiations on the uk's withdrawal from the european union. the former brexit secretary, david davis, has warned of "dire" consequences for conservatives at the next election if the government sticks to its current plan. but in the house of commons, the current brexit secretary, dominic raab, told mps he's confident of reaching a deal with the eu in the coming months, and said the government should hold its nerve. the uk's white paper proposals is
6:54 pm
the best way of ensuring there is no friction and avoiding a hard border between ireland and northern ireland and respecting the referendum. these negotiations were always bound to be tough in the final stretch, is all the more reason why we should hold oui’ nerve, the more reason why we should hold our nerve, stay resolute and focused andi our nerve, stay resolute and focused and i remain confident we will reach and i remain confident we will reach a deal this autumn. because it is still in the best interests of the uk and the european union. it is the best way of protecting trade between uk and the eu, protecting jobs on the continent, continuing to operate sea mlessly the continent, continuing to operate seamlessly on security matters, to tackle crime and terrorism, to keep uk and eu citizens safe and it is the best way to avoid a hard border in northern ireland that would adversely affect the unity giving there. or indeed separating northern ireland from great britain which we will not countenance. to achieve these aims, the uk has brought
6:55 pm
forward serious and credible proposals and we continue to engage with eu to press our case as to better understand some of their concerns. equally, it is time for the eu to match the ambition and the private isn't that we have shown. mr speaker, mr speaker... while we intensify our negotiations to secure the deal that we want and expect, we are also expediting the preparations for no deal. in case the eu do not match the pragmatism that we have shown. as the prime minister stated on the 21st of september after the salzburg summit, the government has made clear we will unilaterally protect the rights of eu citizens in the uk in the event of a no deal. to the uk in the event of a no deal. to the 3 million here at, we say, "you are ourfriends, our neighbours, our colleagues, we want you to stay and we will be setting out the details as soon as is practicable." we also now urged eu and all its member
6:56 pm
states to step up and give the uk citizens on the continent the same reassurances. mi’ citizens on the continent the same reassurances. mr speaker, it is time on both sides to provide all our citizens with that comfort and with that confidence. but in response the shadow brexit secretary, sir keir starmer, criticised the absence of the prime minister in the house of commons, saying she should have updated mps herself, and said little progress had been made in the negotiations. mr speaker, it would also have been better if today's statement contained details of substantive progress. instead, it's like groundhog day, we get the same old story. the secretary of state pretends everything is going according to plan, it'sjust a question of dotting the "i"s and crossing the "t"s. everything will be all right in the end. and if it isn't, we'lljust crash out with no deal, stockpile food and medicines and declare that to be a great success. i know the brexit secretary will be tempted in reply to me to do what he usually does, to read out his
6:57 pm
preprepared attack lines about me and the labour party. can i urge him... can i urge him to resist that temptation and to respond to the very serious questions that this house and the country deserve answers to. firstly, mr speaker, this secretary of state repeatedly assured parliament, including from that dispatch box himself, that a deal would be reached by the october council, his words. well, that is next week. the statement contains no such statement today. so could he first update the house on when he now expects a deal to be put before parliament? now it's time for a look at the weather with nick miller.
