TWO Tory MPs have confirmed which side they will be backing in next weeks vote on the EU withdrawal agreement.

Priti Patel, MP for Witham, says she will be voting against the PM while James Cleverly, Braintree MP, will be voting for the deal.

Ms Patel said: "I will be voting against the withdrawal agreement.

"It does not deliver the result of the Referendum and does not deliver on the Government’s previous commitments.

"The Withdrawal Agreement will keep the UK bound into accepting EU laws for many years to come and will prevent us from securing new trade deals with the rest of the world.

"It puts the future of our United Kingdom at risk by treating Northern Ireland separately and takes £39 billion from taxpayers for nothing in return.

"The EU has secured everything it wants from us in a legally binging document while we have no guarantees of getting anything in return.

"It is a one-sided deal stacked in favour of the EU and it is not in our national interests."

Mr Cleverly said: "I will be voting in support of the Prime Minister and the deal.

"I voted to leave in the 2016 referendum because I wanted to see the UK stop spending hundreds of millions of pounds a week on the EU, I wanted to see us set our immigration policy in the UK, I wanted British lawmakers making our laws and being held to account by the electorate for them.

"I also wanted to see the UK set it’s own trade policy for the first time in decades.

"This deal delivers these things."
