DUP MP Sammy Wilson has said that publishing the government's full legal advice on Brexit will show Prime Minister Theresa May is a "liar".

But the government has insisted it would instead publish a reasoned statement, citing a need for Cabinet confidentiality.

Sir Keir also warned Labour would seek to call a motion of no confidence in the government if May loses a Commons vote on her Brexit deal.

Mrs May will also address the Commons as she tries to persuade MPs to support her Brexit deal in that vote on 11 December.

May has warned British lawmakers that if they reject the agreement, Britain could leave the European Union with no deal, a step which businesses fear could disrupt their supply chains.

United Kingdom lawmakers are set to begin debating May's Brexit package this week, but the signs don't look promising for the prime minister.

While Labour has previously committed to following through on Brexit, support for a second referendum has been growing inside the party, and last month shadow chancellor John McDonnell said it was "inevitable" that if a general election was not possible "then the other option which we've kept on the table is a people's vote". "But it seems to me that if the prime minister has lost a vote of that sort of significance, then there has to be a question of confidence in the government".

A 27-page legal note prepared by the House of Commons EU legislation team reveals that if the United Kingdom entered the customs union backstop then its ability to strike new free trade agreements will be severely restricted.

"Get this wrong and we may put in peril the Brexit the British people voted for and want us to deliver". But on Monday Attorney General Geoffrey Cox, who wrote the advice, will offer only a limited summary of the government's legal position during a statement to parliament.

Labour sources said that Sir Keir was ready to sign a joint letter with the DUP's Westminster leader Nigel Dodds, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake and SNP Europe spokesman Stephen Gethins, asking Mr Bercow to allow a motion "that the Government has held Parliament in contempt".
