The European Union will not reopen the Brexit deal it has reached with Britain if lawmakers seek to change it by amending legislation to ratify the agreement, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday, APA reports citing Reuters.

The government plans to get the legislation through the House of Commons, parliament’s lower chamber, by the end of Thursday but some lawmakers hope to make changes to it.

“Our European friends could not be clearer: the deal on the table is the one contained in this bill and the decision for this House is whether to ratify this deal rather than going round in circles in a futile attempt to construct a new one,” Johnson told parliament.

The alternative to approving the deal is to undo Brexit, Johnson said, urging lawmakers to work “night and day” to get the legislation through.
