British Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday she may give Parliament a greater role in implementing her controversial Brexit deal as she sought to rescue the agreement from a widely expected defeat.
The Brexit legal advice was requested by Starmer at the end of November on the grounds that MPs - who must vote on the Chequers deal in just six days' time - are "entitled to know full legal implications of what the Prime Minister has signed up to".
Parliament is midway through a five-day debate on the Brexit deal, ahead of the crunch vote that will define Britain's departure from the European Union and could determine May's own future as leader.
As Mrs May sent senior ministers out around the country to sell her deal, Mr Johnson repeated his call for MPs to throw it out in the crucial House of Commons vote next Tuesday.
The legal advice also provided fuel for May's opponents, who dislike a "backstop" provision in the Brexit agreement that would keep Britain in a customs union with the EU to guarantee an open border between EU member Ireland and Britain's Northern Ireland.
Mrs May said some in parliament were trying to frustrate Brexit and that she did not think another referendum on Brexit was the right course.
The attorney general, Geoffrey Cox, takes questions from MPs on May's Brexit deal but refuses to release his full cabinet advice, despite having been ordered to do so by the Commons.

Dawson has always maintained his innocence, and claimed his wife had run away to live with a religious cult in remote area of NSW. Mr Dawson told Lynette's family that she needed time away, and he did not report her missing to police for nearly six weeks.
In addition, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) who recently opined that the United Kingdom could unilaterally revoke Article 50 and stay in the EU, tweeted that a ruling will be delivered on December 10, one day before the vote in Parliament. "But I feel very strongly that we really must not reject this agreement and thus go back to square one, which would mean perhaps another deeply divisive and very unhappy referendum".
The Labour Party and others, including the DUP, said that the vote is so important for the future of the country that lawmakers should be able to see any detailed legal warnings concerning parts of the withdrawal agreement.
A Government source said the Whips' Office and the Prime Minister would do "as much as possible" to get support in "one of the biggest votes in recent parliamentary history".

But SNP lawmaker Ian Blackford was twice reprimanded by the Commons speaker for suggesting May had been "concealing the facts on her Brexit deal".
"A no-deal scenario would blow these figures out of the water", the CBI's director-general, Carolyn Fairbairn, said, reiterating her organisation's support for Mrs May's plan. Another said it was: "Too little, too late".
Another fellow Cabinet minister, global trade secretary Liam Fox, also backed the deal, warning there was a "natural "Remain" majority" in Parliament and any attempt to overturn the 2016 referendum vote in favour of Brexit would be a "democratic affront".
'If we have to go back to the European Union and say more time is needed, I think we are seeing indications that they are receptive to that notion.
"If Theresa May thinks the country is with her, she must put it to the test by offering a people's vote with an option to remain in the European Union".
