He also claimed that if Brussels didn’t reply to the deal positively then “we can draw our own conclusions”. Appearing on BBC Newsnight, Lord Lilley said: “This could get a majority in the House of Commons.” Lord Lilley went on to claim the new deal being offered would require a lot of work but did still have major concessions from the UK.

Speaking on Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, Lord Lilley insisted that “It involves major compromise” from the UK.

Despite this, he said he felt uncertain over Mr Johnson’s Brexit alternative to the Irish backstop.

The Eurosceptic said: “I find myself extremely uncomfortable with things.

“Imagine France was required to have customs procedures between mainland France and Corsica.

“Or Italy was required to have checks on goods crossing the strait of Messina between Italy and Sicily.

“That would be a huge thing for them to do.”

He added: “But we are offering them to do something like that.”

“And if they won’t respond positively to that then we can draw our own conclusions.”
