Commons Speaker John Bercow has selected three amendments for consideration as MPs debate the Government's latest Brexit motion.

The amendments selected are:
- Amendment A, Labour's proposal to push Theresa May to either put her Brexit deal to a Commons vote by February 27 or give Parliament the opportunity to take control of the process.

- Amendment I, the SNP push to extend the Article 50 period.

- Amendment E, Tory former minister Anna Soubry, joined by colleagues and MPs from other parties, proposal for the Government to publish within seven days the most recent official briefing document, relating to business and trade, on the implications of a no-deal Brexit presented to Cabinet.

Opening the debate the Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said Theresa May must be given more time to take "Parliament's mandate" for a deal to the EU.

He said: "On the 29th of January a majority of honourable and right honourable members told this House, and our country, that they would support a deal.

"But this support was conditional, that members were prepared to compromise on issues but not on the overriding issue of the backstop."

Mr Barclay said today's motion confirms the Commons' support for Sir Graham Brady's amendment which was passed last month, which "in effect gives this Government an instruction which has been taken to our European partners".

He added that "this Parliament's mandate must now be given the time to achieve its end", and "the Prime Minister the chance to do so", adding that it is "clear the priority is to address the indefinite nature of the backstop."

Mr Barclay spoke about the desire for a deal in the country, adding: "That is... a desire shared by many of those we have been speaking to in the EU because they recognise that no deal is in neither side's interests. They recognise that no deal is disruptive."

He added: "If (one) looks at the political situation in many of those European countries, the coalition that is in place, again it is in both sides' interests."

DUP Westminster leader Nigel Dodds intervened: "Of course we want to get a deal with the EU, but isn't it the case that if you take no deal off the table that's the surest way of ensuring the other side dig in on their current position...?

"So those who call for no deal to be taken off the table are actually playing into the hands of the possibility of a no deal."
