Yesterday we heard that there would not be any Cabinet meetings this week and now we have learned that an emergency cabinet meeting to sign off Brexit divorce deal is set to happen either tomorrow or next Monday (not too vague then).
However, the version of the agreement shared with ministers did not contain any text relating to the issue of the Irish backstop which remains a sticking-point between Britain and the EU.
The concerns focus on Attorney General Geoffrey Cox's advice on how an exit from the backstop could be found to make sure the United Kingdom is not permanently kept within a customs union, which would severely curtail its ability to strike worldwide free trade deals - a key prize for Brexiteers.
The DUP, whose 10 MPs prop up the Prime Minister's administration in the Commons, said it was "in the public interest" for the legal advice to be disclosed. PM May has said that 95% of the deal is done, but Ireland is by far the biggest problem, and it would seem that there are still tensions over the withdrawal agreement between the European Union and United Kingdom, over what's known as the "level playing field".
Downing Street sources played down the significance of ministers being summoned to read the partial version of the withdrawal agreement. "It does not imply that a deal has been done".
Brussels' chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said "more work is needed" but "we remain determined to reach a deal".
Mrs May's plan would see the whole United Kingdom effectively agree to remain in the customs union as a "backstop" if no other arrangement can be found. However, Brexiteers fear that the arrangement could lead to Britain remaining permanently tied to the EU.
Mrs May updated European Council president Donald Tusk on the state of the Brexit talks on Wednesday.
He said the call was a chance to "take stock of progress" and discuss the way ahead.
