JUST one of Gwent's MPs will vote for Theresa May's Brexit deal when it goes before Parliament tomorrow.

MPs are due to vote on Theresa May's deal with the European Union on Tuesday - with most predicting it will be voted down with less than three months to go until the UK is due to leave Europe.

Newport East's Jessica Morden, Torfaen's Nick Thomas-Symonds, Islwyn's Chris Evans and Blaenau Gwent's Nick Smith - all Labour - have all said they will vote against the deal - with only Monmouth's David Davies saying he would support it.

Mr Davies, a Conservative, who campaigned vigorously in favour of Brexit ahead of the 2016 referendum, has previously criticised the deal, but said he would vote in line with the government.

"The time for gambling is over," he said. "We've got a deal here, it keeps us tied to the EU for a few years, but it's the only deal we've got."

But he added he did not think it would be voted through.

"It only requires seven Conservative MPs to vote against it," he said.

"But there's been a lot of surprises in politics recently."

But Ms Morden said constituents on both sides of the debate had asked her to vote against the deal.

"The prime minister’s deal does not deliver for jobs and the economy here in Newport East or the country as a whole," she said.

Similarly, Mr Evans said there had been an "almost unanimous consensus" in correspondence from constituents asking him to vote against the deal.

"Even if Mrs May is able to renegotiate the backstop that would not be enough progress, I would still vote against this deal," he said.

Mr Thomas-Symonds, who will open today's debate for the opposition, said: "There is no national interest in voting for a bad deal.

"After two years of inept negotiations, what has been agreed is a failure.

"My priority is the people of Torfaen - whether you voted leave or remain, this deal does not deliver on jobs, the economy and security.

"Nowhere does it protect workers’ rights, environmental and consumer protections.

"As for the prime minister’s claim for delivering for the whole of the UK, it instead risks breaking up the UK.

"I have looked through the 585 pages of the deal and I can’t even find the word 'Wales'.

"The withdrawal agreement and the short, vague political declaration offer none of the certainty that is required for businesses.

"I don’t accept the PM’s false choice between a bad deal and no deal - our country deserves better and my Labour colleagues and I will work hard in Parliament to prevent a no-deal Brexit turning into a Tory catastrophe that costs people jobs, cements austerity and makes people poorer.”

Mr Smith has also confirmed he will vote against the deal.

Speaking in Parliament last week, the Labour MP said: “This is a government who had no real idea what they wanted, a government who have spent more than two years negotiating with their own backbenchers, and a government who have tried to sideline Parliament at every turn.”

Newport West MP Paul Flynn, who campaigned against Brexit at every turn, was unavailable for comment, but has been too unwell to attend Parliament in recent months. In October last year he said he planned to step down from the role he has held since 1987 due to failing health.

Although all areas in Gwent apart from Monmouthshire voted to leave in 2016, the votes were counted along county lines rather than Parliamentary constituencies, meaning it cannot reasonably be said that certain constituencies voted in certain ways.

For example, the Newport East constituency covers part of Monmouthshire, and Islwyn covers only part of Caerphilly.
